Participating in the community gathering on Wednesday in Common Grounds, I was reminded of a central truth: Simmons is a community ready to be introspective, offer support, remain inclusive, and work through challenges. I have witnessed all of those traits and more since the tragic bombing on Monday. I have seen Simmons students, faculty, and staff build a circle of protection, support and care around each other. Even as we push through sadness, it is heartening to know that we are in such a community.
