I wouldn’t mind being so pound foolish if I were at least a bit penny wise.

The title of this post has nothing to do with the content.  It was just something I tweeted last week.

I don’t have much to say beyond this:

Every year I worry students will be selfish adolescents or fail to look past the surface of what they see on these trips.  Each year I am pleasantly proven wrong.  I guess what I often fail to remember is Creighton students so often demonstrate a level of humanity, perception and understanding and I didn’t often see at previous schools at which I taught.

They get humbled by Uganda.

I get humbled by them.

  1. Tim – Thanks for sharing your incredible gifts and passion with our students, and for taking the time to come on this amazing trip with them. We are so excited to see the finished product!

  2. I would like to meet a person that goes to Uganda and comes back unchanged. I don’t know if they exist. It is so nice reading all the blogs and reminiscing on our trip last year. I hope you continue taking students there every year because bearing witness is the only real way to be globally aware. You are changing the world.
