From NIC with Love “Bridges”

Sarina Wasserman, 15, is a OneVoice Young Ambassador from Santa Barbara, CA. She is joining OneVoice on our trip to Nicaragua and will be posting daily reflections here (as internet access allows). Sarina loves music, people, traveling, service, and Oreo cookies–Doublestuff, natch.


Today, on our second day working with the mentors, bridges were built. Bridges were crossed and connections were made. Connections like these that would normally take weeks to blossom, we have made them in less than 24 hours. Bridges are built to help us get from one place to another and today we built some amazing ones. Through song, art, dance, yoga, and meditation a deeper bond was formed with the “Special 15” as we made our way across our bridges. And, because these mediums have a universal language of there own, we were able to communicate forgetting about the language difference and purely speaking heart to heart. It was a beautiful thing, it really was. Knowing that you connect with someone with so few words just by using the language of love is an amazing feeling and lets us cross our bridges together.


Con mucho amor (With much love),
