The major part of the Haiti trip has come to a close today, with two remarkable days at Na Rive and Sakala. We've seen, felt, and experienced things that we will carry for the rest of our lives. For tonight's blog each student is sharing one photo/video that captures the single most important idea that they never want to forget.
"Appreciate the beauty of small/simple things"
"Physical boundaries are cultural"
"Solidarity is the greatest pleasure"
"Little by little we arrive"
"Find yourself and then give it away"
"Pay attention to our similarities, not differences"
Kenny "blow-baby-blow" Greenwood
"Attention to detail allows one to paint a clearer picture"
"Don't prejudge, allow the mystery of the experience"
"Brotherhood: the willingness to sacrifice for another's joy"
"When you feel compelled to act, give, trust, and hold onto hope"
"Finding joy despite hardship, staying positive. No matter what."
"Generosity: I give you the best I have"
"Two countries, one language"
We head off to Jacmel tomorrow for a little Caribbean ocean relaxing.
Peace, and all good things!
