You know Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel painting of the Hands of God and Adam? Well I had the privilege of viewing what I thought was a “live” look in Rome about 25 years ago. But I didn’t really see it “live” until yesterday. Right in the Campus Center terrace.
That’s where we celebrated Philanthropy Week with a special table for students to come and hand write a note to our generous donors.
Hundreds of them did! And each time, another student enthusiastically and willingly approached our table to draft their note, I saw those two hands touching again and again.
It was powerful. I only wish Michelangelo could have been there.
