Weekend Excursion

This weekend, we joined my in-laws and some family friends and toured the Medical Teams International Real. Life. Exhibit in Tigard, Oregon.

We were asked not to take photographs, in order to respect the privacy of the real people within the exhibit's photographs.  However, a few photos may be seen on Medical Team International's website.

It was a profound experience and I am so glad our children went with us.  My thirteen-year-old had some very good questions.  We were reminded to be thankful for running water, restrooms, and heat that does not require an indoor open flame.

I love the fact that my children left the exhibit inspired to help and that they have a few more ideas of ways they can make a difference.
