On Saturday April 9 Kristin Vines made a presentation during the Gettysburg Association Annual Meeting about her trip to India. Kristin, one of our high school seniors, participated in the Lancaster Seminary Leadership Now program. This program takes the perspective that our youth are not simply tomorrow’s leaders, but also need to be leaders today. Her group traveled to India and studied the many issues confronting this multi-cultural country. She noted the particular issues confronting the people still trapped in the caste system, and those who are living in the shadow of the environmental disaster left behind in the abandoned gold mines of the region. Her presentation was terrific and we are very proud of her. She opened our eyes to the reality of living in a developing nation with many blessings and problems.
