Letter to the BCPS Community Regarding This Weekend’s Tragic Event in Orlando
This weekend’s horrific act of violence in Orlando left me, like most of you, shaken to the core. As a result, I re-affirmed my commitment to drive out hate and bigotry through education, social consciousness, and the teaching of compassion and respect for others, regardless of one’s race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.
As members of a learning organization, we each play an integral role in shaping the community consciousness, both present and future. We must not be passive bystanders of acts of hate, injustice and bias of any kind, but position ourselves as thought leaders in calling out and defining what is right.
