Hi Everyone,

I want to share a story about a program that took place at High 5 yesterday because it was one of those days that makes life and the purpose our work here at High 5 a little clearer. We had 45 high school students here from Iraq and the United States as part of our on-going program with the School for International Training. It was a spirited day as always with wonderful exchanges and moments happening between the two groups. As you can well imagine, the poignancy of having young people here from places like Baghdad, Basra and Tikrit is never far from everyone's minds. Mix that with the energy of American young people from Ohio, Vermont and Colorado and you have a potent recipe for good things to happen.
