Honor the life of Anne Smedinghoff - a 25 year old Hopkins grad killed in Afghanistan while delivering books
Anne was on her second deployment for the Foreign Service. She wanted to be out of the embassy compound and responding to needs in the community. A suicide car bomber detonated explosives while Anne was on her way to delivering books at a school opening. What a badass lady. Here is the link to the NYT story - http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/08/us/us-diplomat-killed-on-afghan-mission-she-coveted.html?src=recg&_r=0. The link below is to Room to Read. They're a great organization that builds libraries for kids around the world. I just made a donation in memory of Anne. Anyone want to join me?
