Monday, July 4 (Session 4, Day 9)

Today, America is 235 years old, and I can’t imagine anywhere I would rather be spending it than here, in Manitou Springs, Colorado, surrounded by fellow students and Summit staff, proudly shrouded in red, white, and blue.

Thursday, June 30 (Session 4, Day 5)

To spend two weeks beside and among the Rocky Mountains, with Pikes Peak smiling down, and to live in a beautiful old hotel, where if the walls could talk they would tell more than any encyclopedia, is heaven to me and 179 other students. In just five short days, we are beginning to learn to see our world with newly…
