Kari Amick is a former student of my English professor friend, Dr. Alan Jacobs (ayjay.jottit.com). Kari graduated from Wheaton College this past May with a degree in Environmental Science. And my, can this young woman write! I believe this is her first published essay.
In this piece, I love the marriage of her study of whooping cranes with her reflections on family and growing up and … going home.
Take a few moments to savor this thoughtful, insightful, informative, inspirational essay. It makes me want to study cranes. And it inspires me to make a home worth coming home to for my children. That’s quite a lot for one little essay.
