A view from the roof

14 Jul

I’m currently in the town of Montenegro and have been enchanted by the conversations I’ve had with the people here. They are teaching me so much about hope, perseverance and about their spirit of compassion and what it means to have an education for social justice.

Sister Teresa who founded the school said to me, “You know, what’s important is value-centered education. It’s about knowing your rights, but also know where they stop, where they affect another person.” Maybe this is social justice- knowing how to give back to the world and knowing exactly why we must.
