Today is the last day of our journey in Cape Town, right now, I have a mixed range of emotions. What I know is that I couldn't have asked for a better experience and location to learn about social justice. This trip has opened my eyes in so many ways that I know I have been changed for the better. Previous to this trip, I was naive about issues locally and globally. Upon return I want to work on educating myself so that I can become an actively involved citizen. It has also opened my eyes to the value of community. We have truly lived through Ubuntu (I am who I am because of you). We have all gone through this 3 week seminar together and it is together, that we will heal the wounds we have endeared this far.
Something I do know, is that this is not the end. This is only the beginning of something that we must work at for the rest of our lives. Having a socially just community is not easy, but with the lessons we have learned, and the mentoring we have recieved, it makes it easier to take a step on the path of less taken.
