Okay, I think the Peace Corps is pretty cool. Kinda wish I’d done something like that when I was younger, but then again, I’ve had a great time travelin’ round the U.S. Wouldn’t want to miss that! (Read on …)
I found this great article by a Peace Corps volunteer who’s working in Honduras. When you want a glass of water, you probably turn on your faucet and there it is. You’re probably like me, you don’t even think about it. But this village in Honduras, they have pipes that go to a stream nearby. In the summer, they’re all dried up, and in the winter, the water’s not clean.
This is the story of the Peace Corps volunteer, Joan Heberger, trying to get a plan together to get water to the village.
Read the story, and I’ll have a GED practice question for it next week.

Hey everyone, isn’t it just horrible what happened in Haiti? If you haven’t heard yet, you can donate $10 to the Red Cross by texting “HAITI” to the number 90999, and the money will be added to your next phone bill. Or you can go redcross.org and donate there. I picked a practice question today that talks about Haiti’s past–particularly about the language they speak.
- In the early 15th century, the Spanish took control of the island of Hispaniola for its gold, killing many of the indigenous peoples with disease.
- In the 16th century, Africans were brought to the island as slaves.
- Many French pirates made their homes on the western shores of Hispaniola.
- France eventually gained control over the western portion of the island, and many battles for independence were fought until 1804, when independence was won, and the nation was renamed to Haiti.
- In the 20th century, the United states occupied Haiti in an attempt to help stabilize their government. During this time, Haitian Creole was also accepted as an official language of Haiti, particularly in education.
- Throughout the turbulent years of Haiti’s past, many Haitians have left to try and make a better life for themselves in other parts of the Caribbean and North America. (Read on …)
