The most important thing that I learned from this event is that by opening up and by sharing our stories, we discover that we have so much more in common than we might think.
It made me wonder, what is home? Is it an exact tangible place where one grows up with their family? Is it a country or a town? Is it the people around you? Is it something constant or does it keep changing? Is it just a state of mind?
