Day of Departure...Airport Edition

What a day! After missing a handful of trains into NYC on my way to Newark, here I am in the terminal, getting ready to board my plane on the way to Delhi, by way of Frankfurt, Germany.

I need to take this moment to step back a bit and recognize how amazing it has been getting to know so many new folks. You're passion and energy has been inspiring, and I can only aspire to mimic your generosity!

There are people all around North America (and beyond) that come to mind, and I hope to give you your due time in the spotlight. For the time being, I hope to share this with you and help you see and feel what your support means to these students in one of the most remote places in the world!

Special thanks to my family, in particular my mother and father, whom both supported and contributed in so many aspects, and in ways that will never be forgotten.

Ok...I think after I get some sleep on my first flight, I will give an attempt at utilizing my new video camera, and putting a face to all of this.

Have a good evening!
