Here’s the second in my series, Who Are These Russians? These are high school students from The School of the Future in Yalta, Crimea. I love these kids and hope you will too!
They were so excited to meet an American and practice their English. They take it for several years in school and are very competent and articulate. Meeting them and touring their school was one of the high points of my trip to Russia in May.
I am quite confident that if more Americans could visit Russia, we would discover that they are just like us. They do not want war. They want to be friends with us, and nearly all said they would love to visit America. Citizen diplomacy is much more effective than that practiced by our government.
