Higher Learning


come home,” she

said, her face alight

with joy, her voice filled with relief.

It was in these Virginia mountains that she first 

learned she had the grit to see hard things through. Now,

 four years later, she’ll bring that learning into her college classrooms

as she is strengthened and challenged  by these mountains  to see more hard things through.
