To be socially distanced doesn’t mean our hearts are apart and our prayers are masked. We have launched a Community Reflections web page for Oles to share our voices in this time of great grief, fear, heaviness, introspection, and action. Visit the page to view videos and reflections from community members who have contributed.
These messages are just the start of a chorus we want to send to every Ole everywhere, and you are invited to join in the refrain. Share your reflection in whatever form is meaningful to you — be it art, prose, movement, activism, or opinion. We want to add more voices. Submit yours to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name and photo.
We live in a time of great conflict, confusion, and contradiction, and I believe that the story of this historic moment must be told. And it must be told by you: the artist, scientist, the humanitarian, the poet, but more important, you as an Ole. It’s what we do at St. Olaf.Bruce King, Assistant to the President for Institutional Diversity
