“We should all know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry and that all the threads are equal in value.” ~Maya Angelou 

Just a beautifully worded reminder to be kind and inclusive with your words and actions. It always comes down to respect of the people around you for what they are: human beings. 💙

Mission Trip Talk!

Marlee and Ellen went on a mission trip over spring break to Ecuador to serve the poor and challenged people with giving them love and prayer. It was so awesome seeing how much it impacted them both and how they wanted to give back to others with love and prayer! They both shared some fantastic stories from severing the people of Ecuador. I am proud of the both of you for going and serving others in need through love and prayer!


Stand Up for Peace!

On Sunday, I went to the United We Stand-Stand Up for Peace Comedians Scott Blakeman and Dean Obeidallah. During their show they talked about standing up for peace through comedy. I thought it was interesting how they used a comedy show to talk about controversial topics. They called it bring people together through laughter. I think this will benefit the wing by using laughter to continue to build our wing community. Check out their website! http://www.standupforpeace.com/


“Place your hands here”

Hello Everyone!  Make sure to check out the new bulletin board next  to the bathroom.  Place one hand on the hand print and have another person place their hand on the other.  Now it is time to ask each other these unique questions and learn a little bit more about each other.  Here is a chance for you to let strangers become friends and see the diversity on the wing.  Everyone is different and this board is a great way to explore those differences!  Respect each other and see what may come from it!



“No culture can live if it attempts to be exclusive”

Thanks for everyone who talked this week about boxes and walls!  We should definitely go during February!  And I agree that it is important to have a campus that respects and understands all the differences we all have.  That’s the great thing about Platteville, there’s something for everyone.  And if there’s not, do something about it!  Make a club or an organization!

There is something we have in common, WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT!

have a great week you beautiful human beings
