Flower with raindrops

The longest distance award...

I just found out that my friend, S, who lives in Zimbabwe, has made travel reservations and will be attending my graduation next month. So excited!! :)

She will be traveling approximately 7,600 miles!

For those who don't know, Zim is a landlocked country in Africa.  It has the lowest life expectancy of anywhere in the world (37 for men, 34 for women). The country has a very high HIV infection rate, and there is a crazy high level of poverty.
