The thought that my last year at Kenny Lake School is coming to a close leaves me with a disheartened feeling. My whole life has been spent in this community, in the church, and in the school. I've never known anything else. Within a few months I will be leaving the safety and shelter of Kenny Lake to head out into the “real world.” I can't help but ponder what I will be leaving behind. This community is far more than a community; it is a family. A family that really cares about each other. I believe that this is a rare place. You can’t travel to any town in the U.S and find people making dinners, cutting wood, or hauling water for people who are experiencing trouble. Here you can see that people actually care. And I am leaving it all behind.
Although I am leaving, the memories and relationships that I have made living in this special community will stick with me forever. Growing up here has helped me form relationships that will last a lifetime, and I can't even begin to fathom growing up in a better place. Thank you Kenny Lake!
