Our Graduates


From a graduation speech I heard:

“In my opinion, our generation has failed you. We pass the torch to you now. So that you can bring us back…… together.” 

General Philip M. Breedlove

Former Supreme Allied Commander, Europe

Our Reflections


Our reflections, our images of who we are, have become marred

distorted, nearly impossible to see our faces now,

with the ripples of fear stealing

one important principle –

loving our neighbor

as ourselves.


And who is our neighbor?

Speak Peace


As we shake our heads not trusting, let us hope that this time will be one of healing,

and not another way to fight. Our words do matter, so let us speak peace

into our wounded world, and believe in each other.
