Library page Alexis C. ’13 wrote an essay called “Caring More,” which was accepted for publication on the “This I Believe” website. Here’s a taste of Alexis’s wise words:

A name represents so many things for different people; it can represent a person’s cultural background, a person’s characteristics and even the identity of a person. When you address someone by their name you care more, and you are essentially telling that person, I respect you and your differences.
