First Impressions

These first three days in Ireland have been filled with immeasurable beauty. I have heard beautiful music, eaten delicious food, and spoken with lovely people. Alas,no place of beauty is perfect, and through some very poignant conversations I am beginning to learn about the history and current day struggles of groups of people fighting to be able to form their identity. I have heard stories of just how complicated it can become and has been as politics, the church, and a colonial history are added into the mix. I am looking forward to exploring these topics with people that I will have the opportunity to listen to their stories, and I look forward to sharing my experiences and learnings with you along the way.

Thanks,
-Maurice
