This weekend 9 senior high youth joined together to fight hunger. We played games, prayed for people, did a can drive scavenger hunt for the food pantry, reflected a lot, and didn't eat a darn thing for 30 hours. We talked about the people we were trying to help - sat in a circle of light until candle after candle was blown out, representing all those who day each day from hunger.
I don't know if I can convey with words how proud I am of these amazing young people or how honored am I to work with them.
Below are a few of their reflections on the experience.
