I was flooded with emotions as each person expressed a wish to stay in contact and sealed it with a hug. There were last minute questions, jokes and smiles but the hardest part was everyone's bit of sadness at the fact that the end of a week full of fun, experience and growth was coming to a close.
At 3:00 the male youth we had been working with joined us outside to watch and wave as our car pulled out.
At least it is not goodbye, but a break in time before we are back with new ideas, perspectives and inspiration!
And with parting words from a student who let us know that "we're cool", I know we'll be back!
