    Dear Ms Reithmiller,
    You will only know if you have truly failed in 20-30 years. You may be very surprised by what your time there meant to the people you worked with. Somehow, keep in touch or make the real effort to go back in a few years. You will have made a difference.

    Thank you for sharing this interview! I am a Peace Corps volunteer that had to fight off an attacker. I was allowed to change my site to another part of the country but the cultural attitudes of how men can treat women is such an issue in so many parts of the world! I was extremely careful with whom I allowed in my house or even near me. I basically changed my behaviors so I could stay. I’m glad that I did and that I could. I wish Peace Corps offered more treatment for people who have been attacked. It should be part of a full health treatment.

    Dear Megan, It makes me sad to hear you say that you felt like a failure. In my eyes anyone who can pack 2 suitcases for 2 years, travel thousands of miles from your family and friends to Volunteer is my definition of SUCCESS. You brought smiles,love and daily English lessons to those precious Ugandan children. God bless you.
