The profound discussions from my fellow seminarians has equipped me to research these and other aspects related to family tradition. My ongoing pursuit within my own family has now been fueled with additional database sites to assist me in discovery. Moreover, the information that I have learned that I plan to present to my school division should excite others to join me at the next symposium. The networking, discussion, and comparisons have been an integral part of this weekend. The anticipation of what's to come and the final days of this symposium are met with excitement as well as disappointment. I am excited to learn more and sit amongst great scholars of the field and yet I am disappointed that the weekend will soon come to an end.
Overall, this weekend has thus far been such a significant time of study and learning. The time here has truly engaged me in the teaching and learning of the issues regarding slavery.
