Carrying so much sadness today, so I am especially thankful for good news. An email from Maurice letting me know that he got into NYU put a great big smile on my face. Here he is at the Centre for Social Innovation. He looks right at home!
Maurice, you wrote me such a moving thank you letter, but you should understand that you are responsible for getting yourself into NYU. Your other cheerleaders (including Yana from OPTIONS) and I simply gave you a little nudge after you did the difficult work of walking your path. It’s not pride that I feel, but admiration for your capacity for self-transformation. It’s a blessing to be able to walk alongside you on your journey.
