Someone pointed this out to me and I thought I'd share. CNN is doing a Spotlight on Ukraine for the month of January, and although my internet does not have the gusto to load the page, yours might! So, spend a few minutes reading about the country where I am currently serving.
On a slightly related note, Peace Corps is remembering the life of Sargent Shriver this week, as he passed away on Tuesday. He was the founder of the Peace Corps, and worked hand and hand with President Kennedy as the Peace Corps first Director. As current director Aaron Williams said, "his legacy of idealism will live on in the work of current and future Peace Corps volunteers". Yes, it most definitely will.
Quote for the day: "It is well to be prepared for life as it is, but it is better to be prepared to make life better than it is." Sargent Shriver
