Good times and great fun!
This weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a Shabbat dinner with a Holocaust survivor who spoke about her experiences in the camps and the Death March in '45. Working with victims of mass genocide is a major passion of mine, and I love volunteering with these remarkable individuals. I believe it is important to spread awareness-especially as the immediate memory fades from our collective conscience. As more and more survivors pass on, we need our generation to carry the torch and ensure that horrific events like the Holocaust never happen again.
Along with working on my thesis this weekend, I went out to a Latin club with a few fellow interns, which was a lot of fun and on Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit Friendship Heights and meet up with an old friend.
This week also promises to be quite exciting...but I'll save that for next time.
