We came back to the States in early March. Since then, several of my students have kept in touch with me via e-mail. They are halfway through the spring semester now, studying hard for the national examinations they will have to take soon.

Some of my students have sent me pictures of themselves, their classmates, and their lives in the dorms at Liaoning Normal University. I think the pictures make an appropriate postscript to our stay in Dalian. These young men and women touched my heart and enriched my life. I'll never forget them.
