Thank God it’s Monday. #kalamazoolove

Thank God it’s Monday.  What a tragic weekend.  My heart cried.  Today is a new day!  And I thank God for it.  Here’s a vlog message to #Kalamazoo.

One thought on “Thank God it’s Monday. #kalamazoolove

  1. It’s been a long time since we spoke. I can’t make it to Dr. Warfield’s memorial services Friday but I did want to share a memory.

    I was then an undergrad at WMU, studying to become a teacher. I wanted to get involved with a group of professors who were trying to go to Senegal to develop curriculum that we could bring back to KPS, to help students connect to their curriculum in different and culturally responsive ways. The meeting we had was mostly the professors talking, as they do. I had a point that needed to be raised and I remember being incredibly nervous about speaking up in this group. I was maybe only 19 or 20 at the time. I eventually got up the courage to speak, even though my face turned red and my voice was not steady. As soon as I finished, some professor just started on a different topic. But Dr. Warfield stopped him and said, “This young lady has a point” and he made room for it. I don’t even remember what my point was but I remember how he made me feel and how he validated me in that room.

    I’m sure I’m just one of many people with memories of him just like this. He was a good man.

    Thank you for taking care of his family in this time.
