My time at the 2005 National Convention was a very memorable time.
I met a great bunch of new friends in the youth assembly that was there. Everyone was an almost total stranger to one another when we first met, and we began to bond and connect with one another right at the beginning.
I also found that I grew quite a bit spiritually when I was there. I had to look deep in myself to find out what it really means to me to be a Lutheran. Every day I got more and more physically and emotionally drained by the late nights, the long days, and the spiritual conversations that took place the whole week.
If I would do it again I would not change a thing. It was an amazing time and I would recommend it to anyone.
