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!
