Peace Out


Until this morning I had no clue that couples could join the Peace Corps. I always assumed you had to go it alone!

But now thanks to a segment I saw yesterday on MSNBC (thank you, Thomas Roberts) I learned that as of this Monday, June 3, ALL couples – as long as they’re both US citizens -- will be allowed to spread their love of
peace by living and working in developing countries. 

One caveat I should probably mention. According to the PC website, today (May 30) is the cutoff to apply for overseas positions that begin next spring. If my math is correct, that’s a few days shy of the new same sex couples rule going into effect. Better late than never though! I hear Botswana is beautiful in the fall.
