Tragedy in Minneapolis. Tragedy in Our Country.

I weep for our country as social injustice continues to tear us apart, yet our staff and students give me hope.

I weep for our country.

Social injustice continues to tear us apart.

I applaud leaders like Dr. Eric Louers-Phillips, Toby Heusser, Colleen Bernard, and James Hines. These courageous FCPS staff members, along with others, lead our Student Voices program. Their message is simple:

  • Everyone belongs.
  • Listen to understand.
  • Practice empathy.
  • Use your voice to create positive change.

Our students are doing just that, setting an example for others to follow.

I weep for our country. But, I have hope for the future.
