From the President: Reclaiming heritage and giving loss its proper due

S. Kent Butler November 1, 2021

Loss inevitably is the precursor to grief. One grieves because one has lost something that had significant meaning in one’s life.
The switching of the terms was very eye-opening and deliberate to me from a counseling perspective. Perhaps it is true that in the past, I have tried to treat the grief and, in turn, have not paid enough attention to the loss. 

From the President: Everything is not a cause

S. Kent Butler October 1, 2021

Sometimes when we open our mouths to fight a cause, we are more annoying than we are impactful. We often jump on bandwagons without receiving context or knowing why we are doing a certain thing. Everything is not a cause! We sometimes protest too much.
