What a Surprise

I have been completely blown away by the response I've received to my decision to join the Peace Corps. I knew my family and close friends would be supportive. But I've heard from people I hadn't talked with in years. That's been really nice. However, I was totally unprepared for the reaction from perfect strangers.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale picked up the story of my plans. Right there on its web page were these comments. I'm almost speechless.

Steve, good for you. A humanitarian is certainly an honorable title and this will be one of your best experiences. Good luck and enjoy and please keep us informed.

Best of luck to you on this new endeavor in your life. It is admirable to learn of someone wanting to give back to mankind.

Steve, don't know you or had heard about you before this article, but have to congratulate you on making the bold move. As an 'older' volunteer currently serving in Africa I feel it helpful to share that those first month of training are rough, but once service begins the rewards are endless and worth all the hardships in the beginning. Best of luck to you!

Kudos to Mr. Hunsicker. He is doing what many have thought of but will never act upon. Good luck and all the best.
