Textbook material brought to life!

John Hume, the only man in the world to win the nobel peace prize, the gandhi peace prize, and the martin luther king award. He represented SDLP in the peace talks.

While studying the peace agreement we learned about the strong role of John Hume. Being able to meet this prominent man was such a rewarding experience. He gave us a first hand account to his experiences dealing with the Northern Ireland conflict. Reading the textbook is one thing, traveling to the place is another, and meeting individuals who played a large role in all of the tribulation was a complete package deal. Hearing John Hume reflect on his attitudes and determination was very inspirational.
