And what have you learned in Oz, Dorothy?

I have learned that education is a political football no matter who has the ball.

I have learned that the kindest people are often the ones that you talk to every day in coffee shops.

I have learned that those without family and support networks don’t benefit from the new rules about Sunday shopping shutdowns.

I have learned that loneliness can be intense in a land where the language is not even close to any language you have ever studied before.

I have learned that the United States ignores the smaller nations it once courted at its peril, and that karmic payback from its foreign policies will be a bitch.
