THAILAND | Wed, 24 Dec 2014 | By drewsweet | Views [627]

Over the last two weeks, I learned a lesson that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The source of this revelation stems from the often-unrecognized wisdom that is stored in youthful minds. A twelve-year old student of mine taught me a life ... Read more >

Saturday - A new day

THAILAND | Sat, 8 Nov 2014 | By drewsweet | Views [612] | Comments [2]
