My time at SMU with colleagues there is always special.

Here are two quotes sent to me from Justin in Cohort 25:

  • “For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate.” ~ Margaret Heffernan……… Justin shared this quote with me, knowing that’s what I’m trying to accomplish in the classroom! And that includes those CRQs (cage-rattling questions).
  • And this quote appears in Justin’s email signature: “I ask you… to be revolutionaries…to rebel against this culture that sees everything as temporary and that ultimately believes you are incapable of responsibility, that believes you are incapable of true love. I have confidence in you and I pray for you. Have the courage ‘to swim against the tide’. And also have the courage to be happy.” ~ Pope Francis
