Reflect and Connect
"Hope is the patient expectation of a difficult but possible good." St. Thomas Aquinas
How has your education forced you to develop hope and patience and how might these "good habits" transfer to your personal and professional life? And would you really value your education as "good" --or anything worthwhile--if it weren't difficult?
