Peace Corps In Politics (Teresa Heinz Kerry's Speech before the DNC in Boston)

From Teresa Heinz Kerry's speech at the Democratic National Convention:  Boston (7/27/04)

In the past year, I have been privileged to meet with Americans all across this land. They voiced many different concerns, but one they all share was about America's role in the world, what we want this great country of ours to stand for.
To me, one of the best faces America has ever projected is the face of a Peace Corps volunteer.


That face symbolizes this country: young, curious, brimming with idealism and hope, and a real, honest compassion.

KERRY: Those young people convey an idea of America that is all about heart, creativity, generosity and confidence, a practical, can- do sense, and a big, big smile.
For many generations of people around this globe, that is what America has represented: a symbol of hope, a beacon brightly lit by the optimism of its people, people coming from all over the world.
