Chris and I drove from Ponce Inlet, back up to Jacksonville for a few days of talking about Safe Passage. At the East Arlington Rotary Club we met Judy Smith who had hosted us during our last visit to Jacksonville.
Mike Selah arranged this and many other Rotary presentations in the Jacksonville area. Seeing the Rotarians listening with rapt attention to the stories of Safe Passage is always rewarding. Knowing that the attention will translate into involvement of one more club with the children of the garbage dump is even better. It makes dealing with my pain so worthwhile.

Pat and another long time Safe Passage volunteer, Claudia, arranged a large group to listen to the stories of Safe Passage at the St. Vincent Spirituality Center, a lovely facility on the St. John's River in Jacksonville.

Going through Pat's photos of Safe Passage was a great way to immerse myself once again in the lives of the children and families of Safe Passage.
