"Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you- it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you… Hopefully, you leave something good behind."
this absolutely sums up my vision for this trip. i know we will have more good done for us than we will do for others and i know we will return bleary-eyed and conflicted about our privileges, but i believe the gestalt of this trip will be something that will forever alter each of us.
