I’m usually the MC at those, but I still need to get a little stronger before I start traveling.
Before the crew left I went over to the high school house to wish the girls well. Talia said she was a bit nervous, so I had her practice with me the things she planned to say.
I didn’t see Shay until just before they were ready to leave, but I sent her off with a hug and load of good wishes.
I find that our students have a lot to say about life on Indian reservations and hopes and dreams for a better future. It just takes a lot of encouragement to get them to believe in themselves and know that so many people are interested in what they have to say.
