A moment of silence

There is a Hanna-shaped hole in our cohort, the 25th to serve with Peace Corps in Armenia. Hanna Huntley died in a car crash a week ago, a profound loss for all of us here, and her friends all over the world. We sorrow for her, and for her family’s pain. Hanna had warmth, loyalty, ferocity, independence of spirit, fearlessness, goddamn cheek, humor, cynicism, cleverness, creativity and charm. Volunteers and locals, none of us who worked with her in Armenia will ever be quite the same again. I will write more about Hanna in future I know, because she made a profound impression on all of us who served with her.  Thank you Hanna.
