My high point today was actually finding a part of myself that I have never known. I realize that I take so much for granted, and throughout my 20 years of living, I have been very selfish. Seeing the poverty and the lack of necessities of the citizens in this community have really made me open my eyes and my heart. I realized that I complain about the smallest things, but there are people who do not have a bathroom to brush their teeth, wash their body, to even urinate. Because of this experience–I am gaining a different view of life.

My low point in the day was seeing fancy cars right outside of the homeless people tents and seeing all of the abandoned buildings that could benefit the community. I realized that this community does not have enough help not only from the government, but only from those who are also apart of the community
