Loss, no matter which side it comes from, is still loss. The Civil War took a huge toll on America - as is the case with all war. The cost of freedom is steep. Exposure to experiential learning is so important because it puts the learner in the shoes of others and teaches compassion and understanding. As co-chair of the Connecticut Civil War Commemoration Commission, I worked with a huge array of people and organizations to better understand our Civil War history.
Building beautiful gardens is another one of my passions. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what your political views are or your background. Everyone enjoys beauty. Fortunely, CCSU gets it and allows me to work with students to create awesome spaces at the university. This one is named after F. Don James, president of CCSU from 1968-1987. He is the ultimate gentlemen/scholar.
