Thank You, Director Nobles

I’m here to tell you that our trip did exactly what you hoped it would.

Travel across the country did change me for the most part in several ways. I met extraordinary people I wouldn’t have otherwise met, I ate spectacular food that I would’ve have otherwise eaten, and I investigated and explored, getting out and being active in a way I may not have otherwise done. Travel brought out the curious side of me, and I found myself better for it.

But it was just as much travel to another place is it was travel to another time. Our experiences at the memorial and the museum effected me greatly, despite having very little knowledge of it beforehand. The images, the writings, and the people around us all seemed so very fixed on that time and that date. It very easily could have been April 19th every day of that week.

I feel enlightened and informed in a way transcendent of trying new foods or viewing contemporary art.

So, I think it was successful. I’m a new person now, and that’s really all we can ask.

 

 

I’ll leave you with this:

One thought on “Thank You, Director Nobles

  1. Your post made me think a lot about how coming to Oklahoma has been a life changing experience for me. I was born and raised in Colorado, so coming to Oklahoma was like coming to another planet. During my time here, I have learned so much about the area and what it has to offer. I became curious about how each place we go can offer something unique and completely original.
    And I agree with you about the museum visit, it is so intense and so real. I learned so much from it and I know I will remember it for the rest of my life.
    It was good having you all here, hope you had a great visit.
