Hello ladies and gentlemen,
This morning, the blue group got up really early. Joe and John were awoken from Mattress Maximus, where they slept the night before like champions. Chris moved out to get a better night’s sleep. We took a long bus ride to SOME (So Others Might Eat), and they do lots of things. They have housing, food, and healthcare, including dental and mental health services and rehab!
We organized groceries to send to their homes around the community, and served lunch to around 250 people. Joe did dishes and John cleaned windows. Morgan and Chris served coffee and Jillian, Nell, and John, served food. It was a good day! And then we went to Starbuck’s.
The white group slept in and then went to Martha’s Outfitters, where the blue group went Monday! We sorted clothing and helped customers in the store. Bridget, Rachel, and Annie helped customers, while Billy, Jack, and Drew sorted clothes in the back. And we got some clothes!! Yay!
Then we all met back for reflection. We talked about the day’s events and discussed how easy it is for someone to become homeless. We did a simulation where we wrote down all of our possessions, and then crossed out ones we couldn’t keep of we started to experience homelessness. It was very informative. We also talked about shelters, too.
We walked to the National Archives and saw the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Magna Carta, along with some other cool documents. Then we walked to the Capitol building and it was real cool looking. There were a lot of ducks. And the reflection pool was gross.
The guys and Jillian got BBQ and the girls and Annie and Drew went to Pi Pizza and Shake Shack. Then we walked to the White House and SAW TRUMP IN HIS MOTORCADE. We think. Nell and Jillian for sure saw him, but John and Billy remain skeptical. The girls saw snipers on top of the White House. The roads were blocked off and it was intense. Then we took jumping pictures in front of the White House, and walked back to church.
The fort got destroyed by the girls, in theory.
Tomorrow is our last day of service!!!!!
Joe, Bridget, John, Jillian, and The Donald
