I experienced something I have never experienced in my life. Yes, I went to many cities and sites and saw lots of art and architecture and read different things. But all of these came together in a way that helped me SEE. I saw man’s search for order in chaos, his incorporation of beauty and harmony in order to heal; I saw the need for communication and compassion in order to elevate a community and to move forward. I got to see how the themes of this trip all come together and how our daily site visits served as examples.
