The last few days have been absolutely exhausting. It was my pleasure to be able to end up such a tumultuous week by meeting with my fellow Brandeisians in the spirit of loving-kindness today.

It was great! I am so proud to go to Brandeis with this wonderful community. I think maybe over 80? people came to a meeting planned less than 24 hours beforehand on facebook. How great it is to be surrounded by the positive energy of all these fellow students? By the end of it I had to tell people “excuse my smile, but I’m really happy to be here and to be inspired and empowered by all you around me.” It felt so great to deliver a pile of signatures for our “love letter” to the muslim community.

We members of the Brandeis went out and showed each other the strength of the bonds between us. High five!

I am in no fit shape to extensively report back. But here’s a taste of what it was like:

There were so many people giving each other hugs it was great.

Handing out pieces of open letter so that we could all deliver them together.

A BUNCH more people came after these shots were taken.

Jehuda didn’t say much.

Rachel, on the other hand, had a whole speech prepared.

Imam Eid looking pretty happy.

Handing out pieces of open letter so that we could all deliver them together.
