We were probably hours too late to get inside the security zone for the We Are One concert. I mean, this was a crowd of two million people - all unfailingly kind and gentle with one another. And of course, if you just need a quick Eve fix - you can come on over to my fabulous new website: - any old time.
Yes, I have subsisted on a limited diet and pined for American food and physical comforts. I think they - we - love his belief that we can be a better country than we have been certainly these past 8 years, and maybe much longer. And no, I don't think President Obama is perfect. It's clear that they do. Off to Ecuador she went—and after a year in the jungle, back to the States she ran, vowing to stay within easy reach of a decaf cappuccino for the rest of her life. With some ambivalence she looked into joining the Peace Corps. Your fellow countrymen and women are an overwhelmingly kind and polite and well-behaving lot.
And we were not kind to the planet as we were encouraged to continue to consume mindlessly, in denial of the real environmental cost of our actions. And I worked on getting published, too!

Great minds thinking alike and all … Soooo …. And then the rest of us - who want so much more for America and for the world - we can now step up and do our parts to bring about the change we wish to see in the world.

You, yourself at just 14-years-old, are a fine example of that. Eve's tales are humorous, horrifying, humorous, sad, humorous, honest, humorous, and touching. The sort of thing I might have done if I were watching at home. I saw people helping one another, people greeting one another, people saying kind things to one another all throughout the long, cold, uncomfortably crowded day.
