Memories & reflections from the 2017 youth delegation
The physical preparation for March of the Living is just like any other trip: buying clothes, shoes and any other item that I might need; but it's the mental preparation that is really important.
There are absolutely no words to describe the feeling that has constantly been in my body for the past few weeks leading up to the March of the Living trip. It's a mixture of excitement, curiosity and a tiny bit of fear. Getting ready for something that is impossible to get ready for is hard...
'What will I feel? What will I see? What will happen?' These are only a few questions going through my head during the preparation, but nevertheless I'm still excited, for a trip of a lifetime, for the March of the Living. This trip will be my first time seeing real horror and pain, but it will also be my first trip to Israel - a place that for me symbolises hope and unity. Anytime I get anxious thinking about the trip, I just remember that this will change my life for the better.
