"We Will Be Okay"
Published on Apr 19, 2017 “We will be okay.” These were the words President Luxton chose to begin her chapel address to an Andrews community that was hurting and discouraged. They were not spoken to minimize, placate or pacify; rather, they were spoken as a call to take courageous steps in a journey toward ultimate healing and inclusion. On April 6, 2017, the staff of Meier Hall responded to these words in a visit to the president’s office where resident advisors, student deans and deans committed to reacting less and listening more, bringing those on the margins into the center and searching for any chance to lift up those in need. In a world that believes its best times are behind it, what will you do to ensure that #wewillbeok?
