A half century ago, service as a Peace Corps Volunteer introduced me to a culture totally different from the one I knew. Within that different culture I came to see individual women and men whose needs for water, food, shelter and good health were the same as mine. Those individuals aspired to a peaceful, joyful life with productive work, education for their children and ways to fulfill their own potential. They became unique individuals to me and affected my life in profound ways. I left Peace Corps with a deep loyalty to Colombia and a commitment to individuals living in different cultures globally. That loyalty and commitment motivate me to work for peace through education and by developing libraries and information centers in communities around the world.
