As much as I would love to not be cliché, my past few days here at CLTC Seven have been some of the best few days of my life! Now, when you ask someone who has experienced CLTC for a run down on what it is, they will not tell you about schedules, programs, or even the wonderful services; and although all of these things are extremely important, people will most likely talk about the friends and what they have learned. However, to me this isn’t even CLTC. Honestly, it is truly hard for me to define CLTC, considering I am trying to define who I am and what my mark will be here. But in coming to this realization, I realized I am not alone. There is a quote by Kellie Elmore that states, “sometimes the only way to ever find yourself is to get completely lost.” This perfectly describes CLTC to me. Everyone here is still defining themselves and whether they do it in the end or not, the only way they can even try, is to get completely lost - lost in their friends, ideas, lost in the laughter and fun, and lost in the sisterhood and brotherhood that this organization gives us. Respectfully submitted with undying love for CLTC 7, the international order, and my heart and home, Star of David BBG of the Ohio Northern Region #23. I remain Sophie Ruttenberg.
