The PCTs arrived to the training site where families once dragged us away, but this time I got to observe all the awkward but necessary first interactions. Men kissed men on the cheek (this is a faux pas) and children ran up to get their volunteers. But they came back the next day using words like “Rad-tastic”, wow, circus and comforting (See the video blog “Training at the SED house”). I’m continuously impressed with the positivism and motivation of this group, and my fingers are crossed for all of them as they trek it through this intense experience.
