I find that time is standing still and rushing by in the same instance. It has now been a month since I returned from Kenya. And yet my body still has marks that are a constant reminder of my experience.
A friend and fellow team member, Matt, made the statement that he does not want his marks to heal, as he always wants to remember what he accomplished. The seemingly never ending process of cutting and nailing down floorboards, tying wire to secure the rebar, bending poles with sheer will power.

As I run my fingers over the marks I still have, I think back to days of swinging pickaxes, digging out trenches by hand, and tearing down structures, all with hope in our hearts and determination in our minds that we will make a difference
