"1. I received a few more checks this week. The total is now $820. I'll adopt Trish's idea of noting the names of and hometowns of the donors. 2. I got 10 VFP Tote Bags to give to the Agent Orange families if the group says it's OK. 3.…"

Generosity and Kindness

Following Mike's idea,I've written emails and posted a message on my FB page, offered friends the opportunity to practice generosity by contributing  gifts of cash for those we visit who are suffering the continuing legacy of the war, the effects of Agent Orange. I've promised to include all names and home towns of contributors on a list which will be in the envelope with the cash. Even if not many respond, a lot of people have been reminded of the AO issue. I included links to AO sites.Now, I…See More

HOW I BECAME A SPOKESPERSON (FOR ONE DAY!) FOR VICTIMS OF AGENT ORANGE

HANOI, April 2005Fresh and feeling pretty angelic after a three-month tour of the country with my Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, 100 monks and nuns and 98 international lay friends, I'm enjoying an additional and totally unexpected month in Hanoi. I've just met two people, both Americans, who quickly become very important in my life....Lady Borton and Hank Baker. She becomes my dear friend and mentor of sorts. He becomes my housemate and cherished partner. The two of them persuade me to forget my…See More

Hi Trish - great to hear from you, and I look forward to us becoming fast friends ;-).  I met someone in Albuquerque last month who told me to be sure to look up Lady Borton, so guess that's now going to happen.  I don't see your note to me on this part of the website, guess I will figure out how it works as time goes on.  I arrive in Hanoi at 10 PM on Monday, April 16th.  Chuck said he'd make sure I was met at the airport and taken to our hotel/residence - will you be there that night, r arrive the next day?  Very best, Jeanne
