Thirty of my former high-school students — who are now making their ways out in the world — volunteered to participate in ink + sky’s first Postcard Project. I am grateful for their honesty, their candor, and their willingness to take a risk.
By disclosing what they are trying to figure out, these young men and women are revealing a part of their inner selves. This courageous decision requires the willingness to be vulnerable, which is one of the most powerful acts that a person can demonstrate.
Your thoughtful comments are welcomed below. The author of this postcard will value your affirmations and kindness. Thank you.
Note — The photograph of the Christmas Cactus was obtained from the Iowa City Public Library’s website.
