Timshel

Jeremy Sopooga
Class of 2014

The novel "East of Eden", by John Steinbeck, introduced the word and idea of "timshel" to me. The word is Hebrew, and the idea behind it is that people are free to live their lives and make their own choices about who the yare. That idea, to me, is very important. People should be able to live their lives, make their own choices, and be whoever they want to be.
