FROM THE STUDENTS
"My trip to India taught me to never take the simple things in life for granted. During my homestays in both Dharamsala and Thiksey Village, I got to experience what the true meaning of happiness really is. Even though the families that I stayed with had close to nothing, the love and compassion that they had for each other pulled them through the toughest of times. Almost every person that I met in India lived by the saying... 'Live simply... so that others may simply live.' This perfectly explains how most everyone in India tries to do away with the material things in life and focus on more important aspects like family, friends, service to others, and religion. This trip has made me even more grateful to have a supporting and loving family, a roof over my head, food, and running water."
