It is amazing to me how quickly the time has gone by. I am having an amazing experience with some very incredible people. Everyday is a new adventure and you never know what you might hear or the unbelievable things you are going to learn that day. Yesterday, we met with two separate individuals. The first man worked for a restorative justice program. It was so touching to me how much this man wanted to give back to the community and create peace. No matter how many times their ideas fail or how slowly things are moving they never give up and continue to fight to bring peace among Belfast. The second woman we met with was a Minister of Sinn Fein. The most intriguing thing to me was that she really wasn’t sure what she was supposed to be talking to us about, but as soon as she got started she had no problem educating us on the history of Belfast, what she has been involved in and what she is doing to help now. Every single person has a story in Belfast and are more than willing to share. The amount of history and the feeling of resilience and community is overwhelming. It is like no other place I have ever been.
