For me, today was a great day. Our group formed more as our own community traveling together. We visited the US Capitol and had the chance to be at the center of our government. There were glimpses of the times in our history that we worked a little closer to becoming a "more perfect union." It is obvious we have a long way to go, but traveling with these students gives me hope.
We also were able to visit the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial. It was pretty remarkable to finally have his proper place as one of our country's greatest heroes.
Overall, I am so thankful to be here with these particular students and to be able to experience all we will over the next week with them.
