Campo Immersion - Day 4

"What we would like to do is change the world.  But all we can do is we can throw out pebble in the pond and be confident that its ever widening circle will reach around the world." -Dorthy Day

Today we had our first group reflection and we discussed our time in La Vereda so far. We couldn't help but feel that despite the projects that were being finished, that we weren't doing enough for this community.  Emily shared how incredible she thought it was that essentially the entire world was created with the smallest reaction which then led into a beautiful chain of reactions.  Our work here isn't always in the number of projects we finish, that is important too but our most valuable work is in the small interactions, each one in some way causing another.  At the end of the day, we may only have two latrines completed, but we also have caused countless reactions.
