Spring Break Saturday - Sorrow


Last year Quanah was studying in Rome for the Spring semester. He was studying at the Angelicum, a Franciscan institution. His backyard was the Roman Forum. His neighbors were the Roman Colosseum and Musolini's monument to himself. He was a 45 minute walk from Vatican City and this was the Spring that we lost our beloved Pope John Paul II. Quanah was there, a witness to what will no doubt be remembered as one of the great moments in recorded history. With the death of John Paul II, for an instant in time, enemies came together to pay their final respects to one of history's most remarkable human beings.
