Had great fun speaking to four groups at the Carolina Friends School and meeting Jemma from Guatemala, and Anna who is going to volunteer at Safe Passage during her gap year.
Josh Lozoff and I were interviewed about Safe Passage on WCHL. You can listen on the Safe Passage website, where we have links to all the media coverage for the expedition.
The girls at the Aldern Academy were full of great questions as I talked with them. They shared with me an Ambassadorial project where one student had created a wall to remember special people who had died. I was touched to see a tile there for Hanley Denning, founder of Safe Passage, that Ed King had added.

Sunday included speaking to the Church of Reconciliation in the morning and at Carol Woods Retirement Community in the afternoon. There I met, Bill Peck, the very first ever child sponsor for Safe Passage. It is amazing how one young woman, Hanley Denning, touched so many hearts and created an ongoing support network for Safe Passage.
Thank you Arnie and Svea, for hosting me and organizing such a wonderful visit. The dinner with the "young people" was such a treat. The three women friends from Chapel Hill (Leah, Rachel and Katie), who volunteered together many times at Safe Passage, now with their husbands (or fiancees) from Panama, Germany and India, generated conversations that roamed the world.
Next up is speaking at the Myrtle Beach Rotary Club before heading back to Georgetown and getting back on the water on Tuesday!
