Boundaries and Borders by Dawson Stout (A’21) Aug 24

The search for some post work-out fuel led our ravenous collective of volunteers to the falafel shop down the road from home. The food is cheap, delicious, and the Lebanese owners, previous residents of the camp, offer a friendly welcome to refugees and volunteers alike. As we finished the last bites of our Tzatziki-covered pita, the idea of a late-night swim – a good chance to enjoy the full, July moon - was floated and I instinctively turned to Jean in extension of the offer.

“We are going to head to the beach near the hospital! You’re welcome to….”
My voice trailed off as I realized my mistake. He continued, professional and with a smile,  knowing how he must respond.
“Thank you, but I can’t. I need to go back anyway.”
