During this learning time, all participants (students and accompanying adults) will be invited to stop, identify a fear within them, accept the feeling of fear but at the same time recognize that love is bigger than all our fears. Thus, we ought to remind ourselves constantly that Love is always there. It’s up to us to choose it and let it conquer over all our fears.
