Comments:

I've been going to southern Africa for about 12 years doing humanitarian work (mostly Zambia and Zimbabwe). Started a non-profit: IWantToHelpAfrica.org. My sons are working with the non-profit and are going with me to Africa this summer. 12 years ago I played a major role in getting a president of an African country to step down from power at the end of his constitutional term, after he had announced he would break the constitution and remain in power. I've also supported and advised a Speaker of the parliament there in his democratization efforts. Every time I visit that country, I have the honor of being an official guest of the country's parliament. For many years I've hosted high school exchange students from Germany, Denmark, Brazil, Belgium and China, who've lived with me for a school year while they attended the local school. I've volunteered in the local elementary school for over 10 years. A few years back I had the privilege of singing in Carnegie Hall in New York, the 9/11 Memorial by Rene Clausen.
