During my 8 month stay here, I’m using some of my free time to apply for college scholarships. I had to write a poem about global citizenship in one of them…which of course applies directly to the community I’m living in at the moment…and I thought I might as well share it with you:
From America to Africa, God opened up this door.
Every day I’m surrounded by cultures across the Earth,
Absorbing information about people and their worth.
My seven roommates on this ship are all from different places,
And the community I live in is full of diverse races.
But the barriers of differences have all been broken down,
As we all unite together to lift up this troubled town.
My team, my neighbors, my family, it’s all the same to me,
