Week of Feb. 10 – 15

“Reunion” by Susan Stock, New Jersey
My spirits soared as I spotted the two 13-year-old girls coming into the Hotel Metropolitan lobby. Ketia and Sapir were my students at Tel Nordau Elementary School where I did my CAARI community service two years ago. When I returned to New Jersey, we exchanged letters, greeting cards and small gifts. Now, part of CAARI 2008, I tried to get in touch with them. I had a hard time making telephone contact, but eventually I did! When we got together, we chatted about current activities and future possibilities. Then we said “good night”, but not good-bye.
