Peace and support from Westtown

This spring has brought new tragedy and renewed pain to communities across our country. Many of us have been closely watching the trial of Derek Chauvin, and in so doing, reliving the trauma of George Floyd's murder. Grief has been compounded by graphic footage of the shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo, a young Latino boy from Chicago, and news of the shooting of Daunte Wright, a young Black man from Minneapolis. Added to these searing reminders of racial injustice was the news that greeted us this morning, of the 45th mass shooting in our country in the last month, this time in Indianapolis, where eight people lost their lives.

 A message of support from Westtown for our Asian and Asian American friends

Today, I join with countless Westonians in grief and heartbreak as we awoke to the news of a string of shootings in the suburbs of Atlanta, of which six of the eight victims are reported to be Asian and Asian American women. While officials are still investigating the role that racial or gender animus may have played in this terrible tragedy, I write to ask you all to join me in holding in the Light our Asian and Asian American friends.

So step away for the screen, grab your shovel, and let’s get to it!  Read more!

The Power of Perception
A River

Maria Alonso

Perception determines and drives our approach, attitude, and actions in any given situation. The current global pandemic we are facing —and our varying responses to it— is a testament to the power of perception and how it impacts our experience, our behaviors, and the choices we make moment to moment.
