Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Business Development/Marketing/Sales for various corporations in San Francisco, Harare,Zimbabwe, St. Petersburg, Russia, Paris, Brussels
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was the first experience that opened up my mind to other ways of thinking and being...a very valuable experience that changed the direction of my life and my attitude towards those with different origins and backgrounds.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Would like to get e-mails of RPCV's who served in Togo from 1980 to 1984.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
We must all continue to work to promote peace in the World and that starts with educating those around us that the moral principles our country was founded upon must be brought back to the fore. It seems to me Americans have forgotten those principles that "All men are created equal"...that "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" apply to all the peoples of the world not just Americans. We must take back our vocabulary and tear down the curtain of Maya that our corporate media as so well constructed...words like "collateral damage" and "rendition" are sick and scandalous. Finally watch, support and promote "Democracy Now" www.democracynow.org , it is balanced professional reporting so needed in America today.
