Magnify the LORD with me; and let us exalt his name together. I sought the LORD, and he answered me, delivered me from all my fears. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed. Many are the troubles of the righteous, but the LORD delivers the righteous from them all. (Psalm 34: 4-5, 19-20)
Life is beginning to feel “normal” again…if normal continues to be a meaningful term. This time last year no one could have reliably predicted we would have effective means to force the retreat of the coronavirus. In fact, many places were entering the darkest days of the pandemic.
This Thanksgiving, our deepest gratitude is owed to the scientists and medical professionals who worked nonstop to develop vaccines and treatments, and to public health experts and government leaders who assure their wide and fair distribution.
Among the Seton Hall Law School community, we recognize and thank each other for the sacrifices ongoing that have assured not only a safe but a thriving environment for learning. Our actions spotlight the common good, a notion central to our Catholic identity.
We are ever grateful for the support of our benefactors among alumni and friends of the Law School.
Relieved and hopeful, let us embrace our loved ones figuratively and yes, literally, as we celebrate this Happy Thanksgiving!
