Origins of a Friendship (Creation)
A year and a half ago, my friend Lee Roggenburg of Florida Lacrosse News invited me to coach the Florida High School Lacrosse All Star Game. I was surprised by this, considering I oversee a newer lacrosse program who haven’t yet made an appearance on the state stage, but I was grateful to be included. It was a special year for me — a player who’d been with me since my first year at Calvary was graduating, and he was selected to play in the game. …
This is my unedited, unfiltered, raw personal journal documenting an unplanned trip to Entebbe, Uganda over Summer of 2017. I resisted (most of the time) the urge to include reflections, since I believe it might take me some time to gain proper perspective on all I experienced. As I draw those conclusions over the next season of my life, I will be adding them to this work. For now, though, this is simply an account of what happened each day of the journey.
Day 1: False Start
Day 2: Waking Sleep
Day 3: Sabbath
Day 4: Deliberation
Day 5: Back To School
