“You just had to be there.”

It’s true – there are some things in this world that you just have to experience in person to fully appreciate.

Want to grasp the true historical and cultural impact of a person, place or thing? Sometimes you’ve gotta see it in person.

Those potent, awe-struck moments endure in memories, but will always be encapsulated in the moment.

National Teacher of the Year Jeff Charbonneau had one of his “you had to be there” moments while visiting the famed Terracotta Warriors in China with People to People.
