“Understanding places and people that shape us”

“No longer do I see others as citizens of a single geographical location, but rather I see my fellow students and cherished mentors as experienced citizens of different homes for distinctly different seasons of life. No longer will I ask people where they are from, but I will seek to understand the places and people groups that have shaped them. We are so much more than the latitude and longitude where we were born.”
