Weekly Report 12 | August 8th to 14th by t.devlin

This is my last week in Denmark, and the journey home to the United States begins on the 11th of this month.  I felt it appropriate to post the national motto of Denmark this week.  While most Danes do not identify as weekly church attendees, the essence of religion is embedded within the culture.  Taking care of one another is what the welfare state of Denmark does best.  There is not a negative connotation attached to the word welfare in Denmark, as the government looks out for all.  I have been so grateful to experience a country that lives life many times larger than it’s geographical size.  Denmark has fought hard and continues to fight to preserve it’s unique and defining culture, as it could easily fade  if not protected.   To read my last weekly report on foreign soil, then click here.

Live well and be well,

Tim
