Getting It

I've been pondering over the past few days how we could have made more impact during this weekend's Experience. One question I asked the intern was, "Did we do everything that we could have done?" Her first response was that we did a lot of stuff and that the students really didn't have any downtime. The perspective I wanted her to think about was not so much doing stuff, but creating and shaping an environment for growth. Not so much about what we do, but who we become.

A little while ago, I got a text page that said,
"[name] gets it. She really does."

For one person to get it, for one person to have changed what they care about, to become a person that MUST, it is all worth it.
