But, back to the event.
A woman who organizes a group called Sudan Rowan brought two of the Lost Boys of Sudan who live in the area to speak on the North campus of RCCC (I teach on South campus).
They did a terrific presentation, but sadly, the turn out was low which made me want to make sure to mention it here because it is great to know that local groups are getting involved in helping to build schools in the war torn country of Sudan.
If you want to know more about the group (which is willing to come speak at your events etc) stop by Sudan Rowan or other such groups.
I don’t think I know everything about the conflict in Sudan but I was amazed at how many people at the school had no idea it even ever happened . . . That’s sad
But it is rewarding to see these young men who are getting their education and who are giving back to America and to their home country.
Thanks for stopping by to read! Poetry Thursday tomorrow
