Pittsburgh Kid - Aaron
Friday we spent the day in Pittsburgh. Finally I had to drive on roads that I was already familiar with. The crew got a chance to meet the characters that make up my family. We went to dinner at Bocca with my mom , dad, and cousin Brian. After dinner I took my cousin and I took Jamie out with us to hang out with some of my boys, and treated him to the view on Mount Washington.
Being at home was just what I needed after a stressful week. I got to see my parents and sister and sleep in my own bed. I realized when at home that this trip is going to be over soon. The next three days in a row we have events. After that its all open road until we return to Seattle. I feel mixed sentiments about going back. I have no idea how I will readjust to the civilian world.
One thing that I have gained from this tour is a growing interest in civil rights. I plan on at least attempting to create a mixed race/ crossing cultures group at West Virginia University when I get back, as well as joining some of the African-American groups as well. Better late than never I guess.
