“What’s your major?” Three horrific words.
What makes a community stop and question who they are? What does it take for a group of students, of teachers — of leaders, nurses, entrepreneurs, writers, actors, engineers and hopeful ministers of service to this world — to slow to a halt in solemn contemplation and ask, “What now?” It seems it takes a loss. A loss as unimaginable as it is painful; as impossible as it is despondent. The kind of loss that shakes us awake, knocks us on our knees, and causes us to double over in mourning and lament. We can’t imagine a loss like this because we couldn’t — we don’t — believe it should happen here. The unique pain of this kind of loss — despite its unanswerable questions and suffocating grief — precipitates an inspiring response of unity. In the midst of heartbreak, in the midst of what can feel like a paralyzing helplessness, we find ourselves drawn to that one refuge which answers the question of “What now?”: each other.
