Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

The bad news. I am technically not graduated yet. I still owe one paper and a mailing for the Foundation :).

I am working on that this weekend.

I forgot to link to this, though :)

ASU's Long uses life experiences to assist others

For Krista Long, receiving her bachelor’s degree in social work from Arizona State University’s College of Human Services may have been the easiest part of a journey that has included divorce, homelessness, a child with disabilities, countless starts and stops, and any number of other challenges that would test the strongest mother/parent/student. (more...)

It goes hand in hand with my interview with Channel 10. I will tell you that it creates many uncomfortable dissonances to get this much recognition for something I am not actually done with yet, and that I did not feel I did that well with (Damn depression).
