The webinar explores many of the same themes as the article, but expands upon them and places them in a more explicitly liturgical context . The third source I used was an article from the National Catholic Partnership on Disability. It helped me better…

    remain steadfast with my values. In this manner, I envision Georgetown University as a mighty and ancient oak tree. This tree has branches of innovative education that soar upwards and outwards. It rests upon a hill of prestige and shades a valley of immense achievement. Most importantly, however, it is rooted in strong Jesuit values that drive the tree’s attitude of compassion. Someday, I want to be the president of the United States, which is a lofty goal. I am, however, comforted by the…

    When asked if mankind had progressed from ancient times to the present, mythologist Joseph Campbell stated that the true yardstick of our evolution is the extent to which we have developed and practiced compassion. I believe compassion—having the perspective of always considering others—is the most basic virtue, one that underpins integrity and humanism. It allows us to appreciate people who are different from us and gives us an understanding of how diversity enriches us all. At Georgetown…

    In March 2012, soon after I was accepted to an unfamiliar high school, a freshman was assigned to lead me around and give me a feel for the school. He showed me where classes are and how to get lunch, but during a break he also introduced me to the school's Chess Club. They taught me about a chess variant, bughouse, which turns the typically slow-paced individual game into a minutes-long competition between pairs of players. Six months later, I entered the school as a freshman, having chosen…
