Keeping the spirit of the Dominicanos

I have just been reading the post-trip profiles the students have written about each other for a different section of this website. (Do check them out in the section marked Features.)

As usual, the students are blowing me away with their writing and with their honesty and candor. But I’m most impressed by how they have been transformed, in small and big ways, by the experience. Like me, I think they are unsettled now, navigating between the cultures and the experience. I am confident, though, that they will continue their own personal journeys even though our trip has ended. 

I am blessed to have been a part of this experience.
