Book Review: Fraternity, Ultimately a Love Story

From my blog, Sense on Cents,

In the process of navigating our economic landscape, we are perpetually encountering risks. These risks not only present themselves from the standpoint of the market and the economy but also on a much larger scale from a social, political, and personal perspective as well.
How do we learn to manage risks going forward? We are compelled to study and appreciate the lessons from the past.
To do just that, I strongly encourage people to read a recently published book which takes us back to the volatile days of the late 1960s. This literary masterpiece very personally details how a group of young African American students and the Jesuit mentor who recruited them to college took very real risks. What was the result of managing these great risks?
A foundation for long term and very real rewards. This fascinating book is Fraternity by Diane Brady.

Save the Dates....and MUCH MORE!!

Fellow Crusaders, 

Happy New Year!! I hope you and your families had a beautiful Christmas season and that all good things lie ahead for you in 2012. Included in those good things we certainly expect there to be a healthy dose of Purple Passion and Pride!!  

With 2011 now in the rear view mirror, the HCGLC has a strong 2-plus years of foundation under our belt.  

In 2012 we look forward to further pursuing our mission, ("commitment to excellence in helping Holy Cross Football win on and off the field"). As we do so, we look to build upon the success of the HCGLC to date and transition our efforts "From Community to Culture". More on this later and throughout the year.
