Photo Friday: Corrymeela

To continue my trek down memory lane: Corrymeela is a community along the northern coast of Northern Ireland. Its main focus is peace-building and tolerance -- not just for unionists and loyalists, but for everyone of all backgrounds. We spent a weekend at their Ballycastle headquarters, learning about the various programs in place for youths who are affected by violence.

The location alone was enough to feel at peace. With the Irish coastline at our feet, it was easy to wish we could stay there forever. On a clear day (which was, thankfully, every day we were there), you could see Scotland in the distance. It was a source of pride to say we could see Scotland from our backyards -- and this was before Palin's infamous "proof" of her knowledge on foreign relations.
