The Pulitzer Prize
I just found out that a high-school classmate I haven't spoken to in many years is going to win a Pulitzer Prize (so I guess I won't be the first person from my school to do that) for writing a series of stories for Reuters about the drug war in Philippines. The country my paternal grandparents came from. The country that I don't know much about. Except these stories, which I had been following, for the last few months.
Also, according to the story on her she now lives on a boat in Asia. Dang. You're doing incredible Clare.
