Many thoughts drift through my mind as look forward to tomorrow’s flight to El Salvador. While I have spent some time reading about El Salvador over break, I imagine it is a totally different experience to be immersed in the community once there. This trip will be a great opportunity to do something for the community in El Salvador as we learn in greater depth about the issues that affect it. I will approach the Land of the Free trip with an open mind and come back with a border understanding of the world–with knowledge that I can use to promote positive change in the world. So even though I’ll have to wake up early tomorrow, I am eager to find out what I will learn and to perform community service in El Salvador.
