Nancy says:

I pledge to talk about how the ‘isms’ hurt others and ourselves. I will consciously share this with friends and have already chatted with students in my class about this. Let us be aware of the ‘hurts’ and take deliberate (albeit small) actions to diminish them.

Kari Brown says:

I pledge to think of others first and support the fight to eradicate poverty – here in my own province and globally!

“I want to live in a world where there is no suffering, no heartache, and no selfish greed; where education is the mighty power that can change the views of many, and spread that and cure thousands”. -Kyle
