Have you made any new and interesting friends recently? Here is one of my new friends, Grace, a lady in her 90's. For her privacy I will not give her last name, earned a degree in anthropology from New York University. She spent 11 years in India, 7 years in East Africa working in rural areas. She also was assigned to Afghanistan. After three years she requested a transfer because as she said, "they were cruel people". She was reassigned to Washington and was in charge of the United States Assistance to Palestinians. Still sharp in her 90's I look forward to more talks with Grace. I edited the article about Grace that appeared in the local monthly newsletter.
