The Apartheid Museum Experience

Tuesday, June 16, 2009


Today has been spent recovering from our long trip home and reflecting on the experiences we shared together in South Africa. I go over the memories in my mind and have read the blogs the students wrote. I enjoy the personal insight they offered on their blogs and find myself thinking back on several of our activities. I most often recall the time spent in Johannesburg at the Apartheid Museum and with the children. It is hard to explain the harsh reality that the children of South Africa have to face each day. I hope that we all will use this wonderful opportunity we had to broaden our view of the world. As our days become crowded with summer activities, it is my prayer that we won't forget the lessons we learned while in South Africa but will use our experiences to help others live a more rewarding and productive life.

Krueger Highlight

Sunday, June 14, 2009


We are sitting in the airport in Frankfurt waiting for our 10 hour flight to Dallas. This trip has been one of the most awesome experiences of my life. What a wonderful opportunity it has been to share it with my students and all of you who have been following our blog. They checked the other day and Arkansas has a tremendous amount of hits on the DSA blog. Thanks to all of the folks back home who have supported me and the students as we traveled. We will post more videos and pictures when we get home. Stay in touch.
