Prior to her UNICEF appointment, Ms. Bellamy served as Director of the Peace Corps. She was the first volunteer to have returned to direct the agency, which has some 6,500 volunteers in more than 90 countries. During her service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala from 1963 to 1965, she ran a school lunch program and produced a radio show on health and nutrition in Spanish, which was broadcast in rural areas.

Earlier, Ms. Bellamy spent 11 years on Wall Street as a lawyer and banker. She was the Managing Director in the Public Finance Department at Bear Stearns & Co., and served as Chairman of Sloate, Weisman, Bear Stearns Capital Management, Inc. From 1986 to 1990, she was a Principal at Morgan Stanley & Co.

Ms. Bellamy's career in the public sector includes serving for five years in the New York State Senate (1973 to 1977). In 1978, she became the first woman president of the New York City Council, a position she held until 1985. In addition, she served as a trustee for the New York City Pension System; as a member of the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority; and as First Vice President of the National League of Cities.

Ms. Bellamy earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Gettysburg College in 1963, and graduated from New York University School of Law in 1968. She is also a former fellow at the Institute of Politics at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Many people were victims of violence, separated, shunned and died in service during her watch at Peace Corps. She may be a democrat. But empathy is not her game. Ends justify the means for this self server.

I hope you have better empathy for children you serve around the world than you do for people who have served Peace Corps and had problems with the agency.

12 pages considered national security and you didn't have the guts to meet with my family.

You are no friend of mine until you personally apologize.
