This year I will incorporate Eric Greitens' book The Warrior's Heart into my syllabus for Nassau Community College. The focus of his writing is how he learned to serve: use his time and abilities to help change others' lives for the better.
My prayer is to spark my students' estimation of their personal impact on their personal worlds: Who depends on them? On whom do they depend? How do they serve in small ways, in large ways, and how do they receive service? How can their writing be usde to uplift another?
I look forward to this semester!
