New Zealand tragedy

When we are young, we seek adventure and look for ways to explore our world. Young people are so privileged to travel to different countries, to immerse themselves in another culture, and to learn about life while living it in new and exciting ways. Travel, I strongly believe, is the best form of education.

Sadly, the adventure ended for some Boston University students when their van crashed in New Zealand. Despite the risks, we release our children into the world and hope that they understand the dangers, the risks.  Unfortunately, precious children cannot be protected from accidents, nor can our hearts be protected from the anguishing grief those accidents bring.

Peace for the families and the Boston University community in the days ahead…
