As so often happens, in addition to learning loads about Lincoln, she also learned how much more she has to learn, which serves as more inspiration. Even more importantly, in her words:
What I do know is that I had an opportunity of a lifetime – and I shared it with some incredible people. The class was open to the public, either for credit or for enrichment. Students ran the gamut from some really cool, really bright traditional college students to a husband and wife team, a mother and daughter, a retiree with several degrees and others in between. Each of them brought their own unique perspective to the class, and I learned from all of them.Ann expressed so eloquently why many of us return to the classroom time and time again. Curiosity about a subject may ignite the spark, but the burning joy of learning is fed by the remarkable human interactions that take place when we join others.
