Winston Churchill said: "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give". This thought has been with me for the last few weeks as I have been thinking about what it means to give and what it means to receive. I realize that what I give is so insignificant compared to the difference it can make in receiver's life. Thus, a question begs, should I give more? Should I give with more intent? Perhaps, should I give with more gratitude? With gratitude that I am able to give and that this is a gift for me as much as it is for the receiver.
I will continue to strive to give more than I receive and I will do it with gratitude. I want to extend this gratitude to all of you that make our world a more beautiful and just place, a place where everyone has access to choices, choices that education makes possible. Thank you for your continous support, it means more to us and to the students that you support, than you might realize. Thank you. We wish you wonderful holidays.
