Had a story filled dinner with Bill tonight and learned that his eldest daughter has got her Peace Corps start date and country (July 22, Zambia) but she will not know the exact assignment until after the two month training period. One thing she can be sure of though, is that she is going to a village where there will be no electricity and no running water. No need to bring the blow dryer.
The photo is JFK in 1961 creating the Peace Corps more than a decade before Mindy was born. I will confess that I am surprised it has survived. It’s an expression of optimism and that makes me glad.
