I spent the weekend chaperoning 18 teens from our school (including my daughter) to a Model U.N. conference at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA.
They were amazingly well behaved.
I have to say, when I go to these things and see and hear the 2000+ delegates from schools all over the place, I am very encouraged for the future of our planet. These kids "get it" and if they retain their passion, their sense of purpose and lose some of the pushy "listen to me" behavior (which often comes with maturity), they will change the world for the better.
And their sponsor/teacher, Mr. V, is just amazing. What a fun, exhausting weekend. I only got the minimum done on NaNoWriMo. Must get busy today!
