Joe Samaha, President of the Virginia Tech Victims (VTV) Family Outreach Foundation, met with Jeff Allison, Special Adviser for Campus Public Safety, FBI Office of Law Enforcement Coordination to get to know one another and talk about the new federally-funded National Center for Campus Public Safety that Jeff and others had been working toward since December 2004.
Jeff was uplifted by hearing about the life of Reema Samaha - her accomplishments and contributions to society before April 2007, and her continuing legacy, which reminds all of us that "we are our brother's keeper."
Joe also shared his vision for the VTV Family Outreach Foundation and the 32 National Campus Safety Initiative, and how these efforts might dovetail with the National Center.
Thank you Joe for honoring me with the Actively Caring for People wristband.
Your courage and grace are an inspiration for all of us.
I display the wristband with pride and humility, and will soon pass it on to another actively caring person.
Take good care!
