Happy (belated) New Year! I appreciate that many of you share with me that you read and enjoy these personal reflections. I want to reiterate that these are my “personal” reflections. At times, it’s difficult to judge how much of my heart I want to open up via this medium and the level of risk that I can take in “reflecting” on what is occurring at IMSA and beyond. However, today I want to lean toward sharing more than I “ought to” in the spirit of communicating with “family.”
At the National level, President Trump in 2017 has created a lot of buzz. Wherever you stand on these political issues, and we have all kinds of views in the IMSA family, I encourage you to engage with each other, wrestle with the right and the left, listen with the intent to understand rather than respond, and however difficult, hold on to multiple perspectives simultaneously.
