Rapt Attention

Some lives were changed forever last Wednesday. Including mine. We have been having some of our volunteers sharing their stories with our summer students. Most recently we asked Cathi to talk about her life. You could hear a pin drop as she recounted her days rescuing street orphans in Brazil, advocating for women staying with their children in prison in Bolivia and aiding refugees in Turkey. The brutality of the conditions of the people Cathi served brought expressions of dismay to the faces of our students. But then the compassion and courage of Cathi and those she worked with brought heights of admiration. The students were challenged to make their lives count. They were asked: “When you retire, what story do you want to tell a group of students about what you accomplished in your life.”
