Going Home

My project is on a topic that should feel relevant to anyone who has moved away and found that they the most important things to them were left behind.  Mine is a story of the things that are most important to me: my friends, my family, and my hometown Salisbury, NC.  When I left for Duke, I already knew that I could never replace what I already had. My friends and family are some of the most caring people in the world. I worried that I would grow distant from them being away, but my fears were needless. My friends all come home to see each other and their families many weekends, and through the town in which we live we are bound together. My project focuses on our group of friends, and ultimately what they mean to me.
