The Importance of Friendship
By Ron Dizon
All those years ago when our roads crossed in the Land of the Afghans, we were fortunate enough to share a life experience that very few could ever imagine. It was the time of lives where adventures and challenges were commonplace and lifelong friendships were created, unbound by time and sealed by the reflection of Peace Corps’ Mission.
Spanning a period of 52 years and getting together with old friends is one of the greatest occurrences offered in life’s personal passage. On October 10, 2017, sixty-four Returned Peace Corps Afghanistan Volunteers convened in San Diego, California to renew old friendships, share past stories and fill the hiatus of years with personal stories of their lives in Afghanistan.
