Molly Cannon: Senior memory

Molly Cannon

My favorite memory from senior year would have to be Kairos. 

At first I was nervous and unsure of how it would go, but it turned out to be one of the best things I have ever experienced. It changed my perspective on a lot of things. For example, you really don’t know what someone is going through so always be kind no matter what. 

I learned a lot about people whom I have sat in classes with for years. It only took four days for us to all learn a little more about each other and become a lot closer as a class. It also made me realize all of the things I am thankful for in my life. 

I remember earlier in the retreat I was telling my small group a story of how whenever I see a penny it means that my grandmother who died is thinking about me. Well, on the last day of the retreat, I sat down in the chair I sat in all week, and there was a penny lying on the ground right in front of me. When I got home I started looking at it and I realized the date on the penny was 1971, and there 71 students on that retreat. 

This experience made me feel closer to God and also my classmates. It is something that I will never forget for the rest of my life.
