Each evening as we shared around the supper table, bittersweet stories of mothers and children poured forth – stories of incredible fear and sacrifice, of risk and loss, of injury and death. There were stories, too, of great generosity and compassion.
The summer was one not only of giving but also of sharing. All of us who went to serve expanded our understanding of who our sisters and brothers are and that we can share more and more.
