That’s the words from a Catholic hymn I know. Man, is that ever true.
Wabash’s Yahweh – Hall Peebles – has had that same impact on many, many Wallies. Check out the Wabash Facebook page – It isn’t just the guys who had every class Hall offered. It’s the students who had one, or none, who were impacted greatly by Hall as well.
I have seen a lot of people suffer with health challenges…but I have never seen anyone, anyone, face those nose-to-nose and carry on like Hall did. There were times when it would take him several minutes to walk into Trippet Hall to get a paper – a walk of a few feet. But to him, it was living. “Hello Tom”, he would typically say…the same hello you’d get from a passing friend walking by. Undaunted.
He was comfortable in his own skin…and good skin it was!
Can you just imagine the Heavenly Scarlet Inn now?
