Any message for returned volunteers?:
It's very important to stay in touch with other Returned Volunteers. Expect
to be a real misfit for the rest of your life. The general population does not
understand your knowledge of societies, culture, politics, problems,and
general life outside their own narrow worlds. And they don't want to hear
about anything that might change their opinions. Accept this. Don't let it
frustrate you. Remember the limits of your knowledge before you were a
PCV. Just keep trying patiently to help them learn, because now you know
so much more about how the world works than they do.
