I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to travel the world. In this year alone I have survived an earthquake in Haiti, returned to Fiji to attend the funeral of my friend's 15 year old son, and tomorrow I am leaving for Accra, Ghana for a reunion with a young man I met 10 years ago; a Ghanaian that has beaten the odds and recently earned his Associates Degree in Finance and Marketing (more on the back-story in a later edition). Each of my experiences in Haiti, Fiji, and Ghana have taught me life lessons that I could not have received by staying in the United States. Each time I travel abroad, especially to third world countries, I am always humbled by the knowledge and life lessons that are passed down to me. It truly is an honor.
