We, at HMSC, wish to take a moment to acknowledge the trauma of the times in which we find ourselves, and the difficult and challenging road ahead for our nation.
Core to the HMSC’s mission is to support and celebrate diverse cultures and perspectives while recognizing the many ways in which we are connected as people and as inhabitants of this planet. We are in every respect, bound and accountable to one another, and collectively share responsibility for the action, and inaction, of the larger society of which we are a part.
“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the inter-related structure of reality.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
