Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I have taught English and French in secondary schools and have worked with DFS in Missouri. I have three children and have kept reasonably active in social justice causes. I probably gave 50 programs on my PC experience.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I am very sad that things have gone bad recently in Ivory Coast and in West Africa in general, but I never had illusions of grandeur regarding our work abroad.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Information and ideas from, especially, volunteers of Ivory Coast I, II, and III.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Be prepared to do what you can, but also to accept the realities of the socio-political climate seemingly controlled to such a large extent by the neo-cons and the Christian right.
