“Today I experienced what seemed to be a whole new world. The people my group visited continued to keep a smile on their faces given their poor conditions. It was amazing to see. The people welcomed us into their homes with no questions asked which is unseen in America. Kids hugged us as we entered their house which warmed all of our hearts. I will never forget the kind hearts of these people who couldn’t imagine having what Itake for granted every day. In the future, from what I have seen and learned today, I will appreciate everything I have a lot more.”
