It's easy to become discouraged & listen to the negative voices in my head after a month like August. I realize that my month does not compare in the least bit to many individuals who live so close to me, their lives have been turned up-side-down.
However, BSM was poised for an EPIC start to our semester.
The BSM's first FREE LUNCH has been scheduled for September 5th for months. Now, Tuesday, September 5th is the FIRST DAY OF CLASSES. As so many of our Lonestar students have lost so much, I've been thinking & praying about how the BSM should respond on campus.
