Received a Masters in Architecture from Harvard in 1970 Have now relocated from Boston MA to 49 Knollwood Rd., Huntington, NY 11743.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It made me less confident in the self-centered role the United States has tried to maintain as a "upper power" in world affairs.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Kirsten Jean Johnson, Mexico City
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I hope that other volunteers have shared their enlarged view ponts with their children and neighbors and that they continue to spend some time each week in community service and political discussion. What we learned may help other Amercians understand why everyone abroad does not love us while we try to convince ourselves that were have the highest standard of living.
