FULBRIGHT: Countdown Day 6
What I Want to See
The Nordic Model
Universal healthcare, free schooling through college, generous work leaves, all paid by the state through high taxes. There's even an experiment with paid unemployment! How does that work? Read all about a the Finnish baby box that all newborns receive, that has reduced the infant mortality rate in Finland substantially.
What I Will Miss
It's just a way of life in Southern California. It's not something you even think about. My husband is half Irish, half Indian. My daughter is half African-American. My best friends are the Rainbow Coalition. I will miss the diversity of food, traditions, people and thought while I am away.
