Our classes have started, we’ve received our passports, groups are working on their assignments, and I still can’t believe we are going to Poland in five weeks. YAY!In preparation for our trip, we had a couple of history professors visit with us to discuss the history of Poland and her people.  I am easily impressed, but I find historians  to be some of the most amazing people.  I am overwhelmed with all they know and the passion they share with others.  Mind you, I have only studied American history and some Texas history in high school, so when Dr. Clark shared the history of Poland I was in awe.  The Polish history has such deep roots and pride that is carried generation to generation.  The university that we will be staying at has existed before North America was even discovered!In learning all of this I find myself envious of Poland’s children and their compassion for their culture that has existed for hundreds of years.   ~Alyson
