So, I’m home for the weekend. Not at Holy Cross, not in Worcester, not in MA, not on the Vigil for Justice today. Home.
And I am walking down a city street to buy something at the corner and a car slows, the window opens, I see the car is full of young people and a young man yells, “You’re at Holy Cross!! You’re doing a great job!!” The car drives off, window open, and he gives me a raised fist thrust into the air.
P.S. I knew there are people from here at Holy Cross because I saw the stickers and decals on cars and license plates parked on side streets near the college. But I did not imagine this! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
