“Here are a few things that I know to be true: 1) @michiganstateu is filled with people who care immensely about each other and the world around them. 2) #SpartansWill is real. 3) I work with some of the best, most talented people, and their integrity impresses me every day.” Those were the wise, inspiring words that came across my Twitter feed from my good friend and colleague, Ellen, the other day. It had been an especially challenging day for all of us, yet her words gave me pause, lifted me up and provided hope in the dark. These are the days we live in now. The ups and downs of navigating a new reality confuse me, exhaust me and energize me all at the same time. The weight of what has happened here is still very, very heavy. The pain of survivors will not be forgotten. Yet the determination to work together and find solutions to create needed change is palpable in the Spartan community like never before. Ellen is right – #SpartansWill is real and needed now more than ever. The resolve of Spartans is astonishing and we will not rest until we find solutions. I’ve spent some time this week working on a tribute site for former MSU president Cecil Mackey who passed away Feb. 8. He served as president here from 1979 to 1985, long before I came to work here so I never met him. However, I did see him and his wife occasionally at campus events and always thought to myself, “What a cool couple, there’s almost an aura around them.”View story photos
