Uncertainty. Division. Mistrust. Fear. Hurt. Discord.

At this moment, after so many months of uncertain moments, common ground may seem elusive, even impossible. 

Red and blue? We can't even agree on facts.

I won't seek to console anyone, not yet. As our Ignatian tradition reminds us, our human condition includes periods of desolation.

Some of you, you've told me, are experiencing that now. 

I encourage you to seek support, to support one another, and together to support our students. 

And I commend to you the E/RS event next Monday, when Heather McGee and members from our community will imagine Common ground in an age of Discord.
