I talked to my son this morning who is living in Cape Town, South Africa for the next month. he's taking classes on Apartheid and Multi-Racial Government at the University of Cape Town, teaching children English and helping men learn basic computer skills so they can get a job. Yesterday he said he helped a man write a resume and set up an e-mail account so he'd qualify for a job. He is also starting an internship at an International Human rights agency. He said it's the best international experience he's had so far in his life. It's funny how we already have so many things chosen for us at birth--nationality, race, IQ, health, parents (or not)....It just reminds me that life is such a crapshoot. I am GRATEFUL to be born in California, To have a loving family that I am part of, to have never been starving to death, to have a college education, to be able to give back to the world, to have had 46 years of perfect health, to own my own business that I love, to be here now to see how this day will unfold.
