When You're Feeling Bad About The Peace Corps

Good friend Dennis Grubb (Colombia 1961-63) writes to remind me what the great historian Arnold Toynbee once said about all of us:

“In the Peace Corps Volunteer, non-Westerners are getting an example of Western man at his best.”

So, have a beer and tell your kids (and perhaps grandkids) another of your Peace Corps tales and feel good about yourself and know for sure: You’re better than Bush and Cheney and all the rest of that ilk.
