    Hey, I am thinking about joining the Peace Corps in 3-4 years or so after I finish getting my degree. I was wondering if anyone on the forum have served and would like to share their experience or if anyone has anything to say about the idea.

    Thanks.

    I thought about Peace Corps, back many moons ago. Though I ultimately didn't do it (I remember being accused by some as being "one of those people," whatever that means), I can tell you that those I know who have done it have had their life changed. So, I guess I'd ask you ... are you ready for that kind of overwhelmingly deep experience?

    More concretely. A former boss of mine did Peace Corps in what was then the Congo. He not only met his wife there, but has returned frequently since and with a sense of mission. Imagine that commitment ... that depth of belief in the meaningfulness of something?

    Easy to say, as you're not me (and I did pass up this opportunity), but why on earth would you pass up that?

    Live deeply. :)
