I served as an NGO diplomat around 2004, under a Catholic Cistercian abbot who was an inspiring German gentleman. We served causes in Cameroon and Burkina Faso, providing supplies and used vehicles. I also raised funds through a Chinese music collection through the help of a Chinese orchestra.
Tradition is a good thing, even as we migrate forward in time and technology. Tradition preserves our roots, our heritage, our culture, and our humanity.
