The start to this academic year has been filled with a heaviness that has touched home for so many of the students with whom I work at Oxford College. The violence in Las Vegas was the tipping point so in an attempt to address some of the anxiety, grief, and confusion students were feeling and had expressed publicly on social media, I wrote the letter below. In a way it was my own attempt to process all that’s been happening, and as I thought about it, I wondered if it could be a helpful note for those of you who read this column.
