Some goodbyes & some much needed support

Written on: Monday June 8th, 2009

A journal entry from: El Salvador, San Salvador

I went in to work today and I had the opportunity to say goodbye to a lot of people. The general atmosphere in my house is quite tense and so it really helped to get lots of hugs and to hear some kind words of encouragement. I've been such a wreck trying to plan this trip last minute and dealing with a hostile environment has really put a damper on my excitement. I'd like to thank everyone for their support and for helping me remember why I applied for this internship in the first place! It's going to be great! And even if it isn't, I'll learn something along the way. What is a life without learning?

Someone told me an old saying today that goes something like this: "You must travel to the corners of the world to learn, and knowledge is power." I'll carry this with me forever.
