In my law class this morning, I had the pleasure and privilege of welcoming students from Ghana, Uganda, India, Brazil, Italy, China, and the U.S. (three students from Florida, others from Utah, South Carolina, Michigan, and Illinois students from Barrington, LaGrange, Bethlato, Belleville, Murphysboro, Chicago and more).
And now a word for President Trump: Holistic. No, Mr. President, it doesn’t mean a poor, shithole country.
Adjective: characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.
That “whole” is called the human race, also known as humanity. Whether my students come from my former home town of Barrington, Illinois or poor African nations, we learned today that we have common professional goals. We also speak in accents. As a consequence, we will all improve our listening skills.
