The world is shrinking in a personal way....

My niece, Alexa, left 2 weeks ago for her semester abroad - to Egypt! And now the news each day affects our family in a personal way. Is she alright? How did we all feel when there was an internet blackout in Egypt? It seemed almost unbelievable that such a thing would happen in this day and age where the internet is the information highway 24/7. Will she be evacuated? What happens to her semester?

I have also learned from my friend Lillie Shockney of Johns Hopkins that Breast Cancer is the leading cause of death for women in the Middle East.

The point is that the landscape of the 21st century is global.
