there was a knock at the door…

06/23/2011

…during my rhetoric class today.

upon opening, we saw Rex Lee Jim, graduate of Princeton and Bread Loaf….oh, and the current Vice President of the Navajo Nation.

he came in and, for the next hour, entered into our discussion on silence and speaking. he offered the perspective of his people, specifically the silence of Navajo students in the classroom and the idea of secret keeping versus silence.

he is speaking tonight on campus. however, this classroom visit was unplanned and just one example of the magic that happens here.

humbled.
