Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,
This Veteran's Day, we pause to honor all those who risked their lives for the protection of our freedom. My sincerest thanks and admiration goes to everyone in our community who have served and sacrificed in America's armed forces. Your selfless service to our country is a model of virtue that our students can and should follow wherever their careers lead them.
On this day dedicated to praising our Veterans, I am especially reminded of C.S. Lewis' statement about the virtue of courage. "Courage is not simply one of the virtues," he writes, "but the form of every virtue at the testing point." Our Veterans are a continual tribute to the way that virtue is forged by strength of will in the face of fear. Indeed, several of our graduates have enlisted because they were inspired by the example of their forefathers. Like them, may we ever strive to become worthy of the freedom that our Veterans secure on our behalf.
