University of Toronto Students for Life: This is…farewell???

This post was written for University of Toronto Students for Life by Lucy Schmidt. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

So I am leaving for the airport in about four hours.


May fifth is going to hit me like a flash flood, out of no where, intense and sudden, catching me entirely unprepared. No, I suppose I am a little bit more prepared than I were to suddenly be hit by a flash flood. I’m packed. I’m immunized. I’m exited. I’ve done the homework. I have a passport. I have the gear. Hopefully some courage, heart, and inner strength as well. Whatever happens, whatever awaits me, whatever I am met with, I plan to make the best of it. I don’t know what that means yet. But I know that I am so fortunate to be able to partake in this.

So, this is goodbye and this is also thank you. Because I am at this point, just hours away from my flight, but I couldn’t have gotten here alone. You have all been very supportive, and very wonderful, and very exited, and that means so much to me. Thank you for all who donated to me, that meant so much to me as well, and thank you to my parents, and my family, and my friends, and the Intercordia staff, and my fellow Intercordians, and the Intercordia alumnus, and EVERYONE who has given me a word of encouragement, a word of advice, a dollar or two, their friendship, or their love. I am alone without all of you, but with you I have everything.

Keep following, I will post soon after I land, and hopefully you don’t have to wait to long for exiting photos.
