Never stop learning

I asked the students to write a blog post about what they are learning in our whirlwind week of video, theology and feature writing. It made me realize how much I learn every time I embark on this adventure.

  • I learn how deeply rooted Jesuit values are in these students and I am thankful for that.        I learn how quickly a community can form, one that is accepting and open and really funny.
  • I learn how glad I am for Father Daniel Hendrickson’s Creighton Global Initiative. Backpack Journalism received one of the grants and I am thankful for that. But this year I am thankful that A.J. Olnes was on the committee AND decided to join Backpack Journalism. I’d call that Creighton Global Initiative in action.
  • I learn how generous and connected the Backpack Journalism alums are as they read and comment on the blogs and show up for our reflection send-off.
  • I learn the power of saying yes to things that challenge and scare you.

Thanks to all who are helping me learn this important lessons.
