I was a news reporter for 16 years, seven of them a foreign correspondent in the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans.

In any democratic, civilized - even non-democratic nations, if you are a nation, it means to say that in our case, if there's a hurricane in Louisiana, the people of Vermont are there for them.
