It seems like Ms. Bradshaw has the right words for every situation in life, including moving away from the ones that we love. It is comforting to realize that, in truth, we are all so very close. Though land and ocean may separate us- planes, trains, and cars can bring us back together at the click of a mouse or at the turning of a key. I try to remind myself of what it would have been like in the past, to salute your country and countrymen knowing you may never be able to return. Instead, I know we will be seeing each other soon- in Bergamo, in Toronto, in Edmonton, in Florence, and in Ireland for starters.
