Oh Captain, My Captain: Prof Dan Goodman

  1. Beautiful.I asked Trinity if I could read “O Captain, My Captain” in what I wrote to potentially share tomorrow. I'm glad I could share these memories with you too, Sam and am eternally grateful to have had you with me during this time.What I wrote for tomorrow is so similar to what you have written here. I am grateful that Goodman helped me and you to connect.I, like you, am without a mentor and without a guide. As you said last night, we are like Jesus' disciples wondering what to do now that he's gone. The key, though, is that we do it together. We need each other. I know I need you.

  2. I love you, Sam. And although we all feel a little lost right now, I am so glad we are lost together. On top of all the lessons that Dr. Goodman taught us and the memories that we share of him, the greatest gift he gave to us was in bringing the three of us together. As I am writing that I realize how cheesy I sound…but I have really come to rely on you and Thomas in a big way, and I seriously don't think I could have even began to process a loss like this without the two of you!

    1. Hey guys – I remember Goodman talking about the disciples and how they took up the work of Jesus after he was gone. As one who has been shaped by Dan Goodman, I hope my life will reflect his love for others and his commitment to honesty in scholarship and in the church. Although I am no longer a student at the Divinity school, I will stand together with you in an effort to carry out the work of a great man, who we all deeply miss.

  13. Sam, be happy to be able to feel the sort of love for another person that can cause such pain. It makes you live at a much higher level and the experience will add more compassion to your relationships. These losses make us realize how precious every moment together really is and the importance of living in the present. You are in my thoughts and my heart goes out to you.

  14. Sam, I am so sorry for your loss. As I read through your post, I couldn't help tearing up. I had a person in my life much like your Prof. Goodman, who died way too soon, as well. I felt all things you've shared about ….and I sometimes still do, to tell you the truth. Music is what really got me through, too. Celine Dion, really. I will be forever grateful to Celine – she unknowingly held my head in her lap and my heart in her hands while I cried – for months. Have you ever read “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”? It is one of my very favorite books. Whenever I'm aching for Sammie, I take myself through that book in my head and it really helps. I need to sit down and actually read it again. My thoughts and prayers are with you.I saw your tweet that you went to email him. 🙁 {{{Sam}}}
