Arriving in DC
Posted on 02/21/2011 @ 11:25 AM
Today has been a very long, action packed day. After our seven hour bus ride, we took a nice stroll through D.C., making sure to stop at Starbucks. We met all of the other participants and listened to two unbelievable speakers discuss their encounters with homelessness. During a moving speech, we got to hear about their struggles and how they picked themselves back up. After the session, we split into groups for a brisk walk to the White House. If today was any indication of how the rest of the seminar will be, then we’re all in for an educational, interesting treat.
