Amid the noise and music and laughter and somewhat rhythmical ongoing announcements of the reverse drawing (we didn’t win), we decide to call it a day. I gather my stuff and glance toward the river and the setting sun. It’s awesome. It’s a peace offering, I think, from nature itself — a break from forecast thunderstorms just for this event. There’s a surprising peace in sunsets, and never so much as at this moment, where so many diverse people have come together for a purpose larger than themselves. Tomorrow there will be a sunrise that holds far more promise for this organization than ever before. Grateful for the opportunity to help make a difference.
