This week, St. Mike's showed its true colors in a time of tragedy on campus.
When we lose a friend, a passing acquaintance, and sometimes even a complete stranger, it's uncertain how we might respond. We may feel crushed, overwhelmed and scared. We may feel anger, guilt and confusion. We may not know what to feel.
However, one certainty in times like these is that those affected will reveal who they truly are. And this week, St. Mike's proved themselves to be caring, loving, passionate, unconditionally supportive and united as a community- whether they were close to Jerry, a stranger to Jerry, a student, a professor, faculty or staff.
I'm proud to be part of a place that has come together in such a way this week. The upcoming days, weeks and even months may be difficult, especially for those much closer to Jerry. However, from the many stories I've heard, I think he would want us to celebrate his life and stay strong through our senior year here at St. Mike's.
Be good to yourselves and each other.
