Am grateful I had the opportunity..
Looking back, I think it took the village to keep me going, couldn't have done it without their support..I ebb and flow with local anti-war and peace organizations..now somewhat active with Pax Christi and and Interfaith group..probably wouldn't have happened if I hadn't lived through the "ouskirts" of the coup in 1980
