As I walk from class to class, building to building, I realize how unique Loyola is. I walk along the lake shore and see that others have the same idea that I do: to center one after a stressful test, or a paper that had been weighing on your mind for weeks. We are constantly introduced to new experiences every day, every hour. I have met people with different values, beliefs, experiences, and ethnicities that I never would have encountered if I had not gone to Loyola. That’s not even the most fascinating part: the greatest thing is how welcomed into the community all these unique types of people are warmly welcomed into a city that can sometimes be so cold. I find that social justice is having many diverse groups be treated equally, without prejudice, and to not be afraid to stand up and share their values and beliefs to the world.

Last February I journeyed to El Salvador with associates from other Jesuit colleges and universities across the United States with the Ignatian Colleagues Program. We were challenged by many of our guides to engage in a solidarity pilgrimage and not allow our experience in El Salvador to devolve into solidarity voyeurism. With the eyes of the Salvadoran martyrs and the blood of those crucified Salvadorans within reach, we were humbled and challenged to enter into the perspective of those who sacrificed and were sacrificed every moment of our time in El Salvador.
