We LOVED the food

Seeing the documentary, Weaving Life, come to life after hearing about it, seeing bits a pieces of it, and writing about it, was a experience that will be cherished by many. People with different background, pasts, and experiences came together to watch one film that was produced by an Eastern Mennonite University class. We got to see the producers themselves talk about the experience. We also got to see people the film affected.

After the showing of the film and the talkback, a reception took place with food such as homemade baklava, made by an EMU student, as well as truffles and chips and humus. Though each person there has different histories, we were all brought together through this food. Food is something that everyone can relate to. During this event, we were all able to relate to each other as well as to Dan Terry and his family through gathering together as well as while consuming food.
