One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Some of the moments that most awestruck me are to see nature at its best!!! Hard to pick one or two.
But one that really is my mind and heart, is when I saw some members of an indigenous group from Mexico, living in the US, during a cultural class I organized. Specifically, when they heard the professor speaking to them in their own language so far away from their origin land. One of them said, almost crying of joy and pounding his chest with his own fist "It feels right here, in my heart". I almost cried too!! of joy and seeing that for moments like this are priceless!! Also when they thanked me for that and told me that I had their trust.
