Julia Campbell ‘wanted to help people’

Found this blog post today, which includes a piece Julia Campbell wrote about her experiences with the Peace Corps in the Philippines. In it, Julia wrote:

“I joined the US Peace Corps, the American government’s all-volunteer service corps, because I wanted to help people. I’m just one of 7,749 volunteers in 73 countries around the world. After several years as a journalist and a teacher in New York, I wanted more out of life, something a bit more meaningful. Having a good job – something I admit Americans take for granted – wasn’t enough anymore. I wanted to give something back to the world that had treated me so well.”

Great words.

Latest this morning is more from police about the suspect, identified as a woodcarver but he is still not in custody. No news yet in a memorial in Fairfax.
