February 2013 Panim el Panim 2

Today was an exciting day! Being the first group to arrive, we had to wait for all the other groups to make their way to D.C. Our group explored Washington, D.C. before the other groups arrived – it was great!

February 2013 Panim el Panim

On Sunday, we started our amazing Panim el Panim experience. We heard from speakers from the National Coalition for the Homeless. Everyone was really moved by their stories. They told us about their own homelessness experiences. They also explained to us that homeless people aren’t all crazy, and their homelessness experiences had to do with a lot of mistakes that happened in their lives. Their stories were very touching, and it made me feel differently about homeless people and how we should treat them.
