Back in America

It is Tuesday June 26, and I have a hard time re-adjusting and processing the many experiences I have had in Bosnia.  I have always appreciated my country, my family and my privilege, but feel it even more now that I am back.  I cannot say enough to Anne and Michelle and GSSW for the opportunity to take this journey.  I would say that I learned more than I can ever put into words both in a historical, political and personal context.

This class cannot be described as a course in a curriculum but much more profound than anything I have ever experienced.  As an older student the opportunity to have such an experience for my first trip to Europe was amazing.  I am compiling my many notes, and names of all the people I have met while in Bosnia and will be sharing more as I organize my thoughts and joy of meeting such wonderful native Bosnian’s.  Despite the tremendous conflict they went through, their hearts are forever backing the city of Sarajevo….

More to come!
