Marietta sits for the third time in a philosophizing circle of Student Council officers at Albemarle High School. The new philosophers improve each time in figuring out how to use their better understanding of ideas in practical ways. Whether at a basketball game, Valentine's Dance, lunch, or walking the halls, students can strive to practice and encourage empathy. Between Marietta's visits, sponsor Rich Lindsay keeps the dialogue going. Can shared music foster communication? Will gratitude pave the path to experiencing joy? Yes.
