Student Letter to Former President Bowen

haverfordsocialjustice:

Dear Dr. Bowen,

I am writing to express my concern with your remarks at Haverford’s commencement ceremony today. I am a member of the class of 2014, and I was a signatory of the original letter sent to Dr. Birgeneau.

I was concerned with your address because while you recommended dialogue, I did not understand you to be inviting it. As you know, a commencement address is necessarily one-sided.

You had a loud microphone and a large audience, and yours was the last word. In referencing Michael Rushmore’s quote about a “small victory”, I felt you were doing exactly what you were speaking out against - chastising someone’s behavior without allowing them an opportunity to respond.

I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration.
