Today I published an op-ed in the Baltimore Sun about my recent trip to southern Africa including Zambia, Namibia, and South Africa. We spent much of our time with our son who is serving in the Peace Corps in Namibia. We also visited Robben Island where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years. The piece is a bit travel log, a bit commentary.
The editor headed the piece with a Los Angeles Times interview about Mandela. If you are an educator, this might be worth sharing with your students.
I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
