Reflections

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.
