Hard to imagine the hardships now facing so many after the wrath of a hurricane.
When the sun returns it will seem that another eclipse has passed with the darkness disappearing. Except now there is little to celebrate.
A great lady and a close friend was lost today. She fought her sudden illness with whatever strength she had but it wasn't enough. Beth Howard Beffa was beautiful in every way.
Greetings from this side of the Atlantic. I hope this letter finds you well, as it will travel many virtual miles to reach you.
I come back to the US tomorrow refreshed and eager to see what we can make of the lettrs company, and all innovations that can entail.
Thanks for providing the air cover I know it will take to reach the stars with the lettrs company. I am glad to have come to know you.
Yours, signed as an original,
Our anthem is heard at parades, events, and ceremonies but sounds the sweetest when played on Independence Day.
The backdrop to an orchestra of fireworks on a summer's evening reminds us all so well that we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave. America the beautiful. From sea to shining sea.

New Zealand versus United States.
Today I had an Uber driver in Atlanta. From Ethiopia and has lived in the US for over 33 years.
He told me he wanted to keep learning and asked if I would tell him things, anything. That my experiences would be meaningful to him. Where do you start. What would he understand. So I started with my favorite foods and asked of his. Those from Ethiopia. Where he finds the ingredients in Atlanta. Which are the best Ethiopian restaurants in Atlanta? His favorite Southern foods. Did he follow baseball and why.
What does America mean to him and his dreams. He said here his family can do or be anything. My learning hour passed quickly as we said goodbye
The emergence of Lettrs reminds me of a State Department program started by President Eisenhower called "People to People". Reaching out across the globe to share ideas and experience. I spent several months in Kenya in 1980 building a sport program within People to People
Lettrs now allows the program to stay alive once again through the growth of modern communications. We all are now only a few seconds of time away from each other.
People to People once again!
Five hour flight delay today with the usual hourly departure postings. And then, finally, no flight. Scramble for another and more delays. Good time to write letters!
