I remember as a young girl watching, “Let’s make a deal” on television. I was always just as surprised as the contestants, when they selected either the beautiful curtain or the decorative box, and it usually was a clunker inside. Sometimes our various guests are judged by their outer appearances, which do not generally reveal their rich histories and experiences. Capuchin Friar David Hirt offers a poetry class at the House of Peace site, and who would have imagined the inspiring poems which have been shared by many of our guests. Many of the guests who have participated in this poetry class, may have never been viewed by others as possessing such creativity! What joy it is to watch our guests blossom as they share gifts of poetry with the community.
