H. Clinton comments about PC here in Swaziland.

Read an article in the Swazi paper, which I read both newspapers every morning as the of day work starts, With Hilary Clinton congradulating Swaziland on its Independence Day. She went on to say over the years. "more then 1700 Americans have joined Swazi communities through the Peace Corps to foster cultural ties between the 2 nations and help address local challenges."

This really was one of the first times since I have been here that I felt the impact of what I am doing as more then just a personal choice and personal interaction with the people I am working with. I think I dozed through the seminar session where they told us this exact point in training. (by the way, I drifted off way to many times during the bearucractic sessions.)
