Feeling at Home, Far From Home

My experience as a Shinshin (young Israeli emissary) in Atlanta for the past two months can be expressed through the song by the Israeli band, Hatikva 6.  The song begins with a guy saying, "Here I am. I came to the world to give the time. Hello everyone, I'm ready!" He asks himself, "What is my purpose in this world?" It brings me back to the day I boarded a plane to Atlanta with seven other Shinshinim and went on the journey of a lifetime.
