Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
My Peace Corps experience sensitized me to the world. Life in the world is not what is published in our local or national news, it's what is experienced up close and personal to the nations of mother earth. There is not much difference from peace makers and peace keepers, we all hate war.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone in Group I in Swaziland, specifically Mike Sturm.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Hey Swaziland I, how about a reunion!
