So much love

June 22, 2007

My overall impression of the experience that the students had was that they were in love with each other.  They all seemed so thrilled to be together.  Some people were moved to tears by how affirming it was to realize that they were not alone in their growth at the literacy center.   People ran across the room to hug people that they had never met before because they were so thankful to hear what they had to share.  People definitely left wanting to hold onto the experience of meeting each other.  They want to get together every weekend!  So many people exchanged phone numbers.  They referred to each other as family.  I don’t think I’ve seen so much love in a group of people that were meeting for the first time…ever.
