Sunday, December 10, 2006 :::
Conaway has already written his piece on the recently-ended Sorensen classes. I believe the sentiments he expressed are widely shared.
For myself, the ending was quite different, being as it was spent taking a fellow classmate to the doctor (building social capital, don't you know).
As I told some folks over the weekend, I'm not sure what the experience means, or whether it has or will change the way I approach politics. Maybe it has and I simply don't realize it (yet).
One undeniable and extremely valuable thing I take away from Sorensen is friendship. And perhaps it's on this personal level, and over time, that the real differences will be made.
And on the topic of differences, it's my understanding that a suggestion I made was taken to heart regarding next year's program. To the class of 2007 I have one thing to say: Do the reading.
And to my classmates -- my friends -- my best wishes go with you, always.
