My Dear Old Cathedral, Here’s to You…

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” That quote is by far one of my favorite quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As my alma mater, Cathedral High School, and its current students are going through this unprecedented amount of grief and loss, I want them to know we fully stand behind them with support and anything else needed.

The definition of the word compassion, according to Webster’s dictionary, is a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering. There is no better word to describe the feeling that I and all other Cathedral graduates are experiencing.
