From the Dean's Desk - June 19, 2020

Dear GT Computing colleagues,

Georgia Tech Dean of Computing Charles Isbell

How are you doing? I’m doing well, all things considered, thanks for asking. Like you, I’m managing holding actions on multiple fronts right now: there’s the budget, uncertainty about the Fall, struggles to stay safe during a pandemic, and, well, everything else that’s going on right now.

But today is Juneteenth and tomorrow is the summer solstice. Both the turning of the seasons and the celebration of liberation long coming remind us that whatever our struggles, we will move forward. As my mom says, “This too shall pass”. No matter how stuck we feel right now, change is always on the way.

I’m going to spend my weekend thinking about that bit of wisdom, and probably take a nap. However you choose to spend this weekend, I hope you find something good in the world to comfort and to inspire you. A lot of things are uncertain right now, but one thing we know for certain is that more than ever, the world needs love and kindness.

Take care of yourselves, and of each other, and have a kind and peaceful weekend.

Peace.
