Impact Boston 2012 Session 1
Posted on 06/28/2012 @ 11:00 PM
Nike Village is the best experience ever. Each person we have met there has impacted my life. They all are affected by mental illness, but they don't seem any different than you or me. It's really easy to have a conversation with them.
The best experience I had was when one of the residents was talking to me. I lost my voice and she noticed, so she asked me if I wanted a cough drop. I said yes, and she said that she was really glad that she could help someone. It made me feel like I could cry because she didn't realize how much she was impacting my life. But I was impacting her life while she was impacting mine, too.
