Humans of CHS: Dr. Nicole Jund

Aubrey Phillips
“In my lifetime there’s been several different events. I think probably my earliest very concrete memory of something scary like that happening was the Murrah Building in OKC. My dad was a federal government employee and he was also in the military and I was in school the day that happened and I remember that coming across the TVs and I was having a hard time delineating what federal building had been bombed. My dad often worked in federal buildings through the central United States which was where I could tell where that was and so I didn’t know which building my dad was in that day and I remember feeling very scared, and it was kind of the first time I made a very real connection to something like that. My dad was fine, but a lot of people weren’t. Since that time there has been many other incidences, 9/11 happened, we had the horrific events in Orlando, and so many others. And certainly, the events of [Oct. 10]. With all of that, I think what’s most important is that we all remember that we need to love each other, and we need to take care of each other, and that we need to care for those around us, and to pay attention to the needs of our family members and our friends, pay attention when somebody’s hurting, be respectful of others views, and be respectful of others faiths, and all of those different factors. The more that we do that, and the more that we help our neighbors, the less likely every single day that these kinds of things will happen.” -Coppell High School Principal Dr. Nicole Jund on the events of Oct. 10 in Las Vegas.
