First word

“The people I love the best
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shallows
and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight.”
– Marge Piercy

As I start this new blog, I pause to remember all of the people around the world whom I have had the good fortune to meet– people who have not dallied for one minute in their tireless effort to make their communities healthier, safer, and more hopeful.  This blog is dedicated to them, as well as to their international partners who cross barriers of culture, power, and class to work side-by-side these local people as they address their most pressing needs.  As Marge Piercy goes on to say, “The work of the world is common as mud.”  Let’s jump in!
