We’ve been home almost a week, and the intensity of what we experienced in Ghana is finally hitting me. I finished a short video of our trip last night, and I watched it this morning with our homeschool group. It’s been two weeks since we visited the slave castles, and I shed my first tears today.
My 11th grade English teacher was fond of saying, “How do I know what I think until I see what I say?”
That was his way of telling us that you can’t understand your experience until you write about it. I’m not sure that he’s right, but his words have stuck with me all these years. And it’s certainly true that preparing the video was a gift to me. Thanks for letting me share.
