We are Peace Corps Volunteers!!! During a fancy, formal ceremony this afternoon at the home of the US Ambassador, we raised our right hands and stated the following: “I, (our name), do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, domestic and foreign, and that I take this obligation freely and without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge my duties in the Peace Corps by working with the people of Panama as partners in friendship and in peace.”
We had a great time mingling in the beautiful home of the Ambassador and enjoyed a reception after the ceremony in which we devoured the delicious food in true we’ve-been-in-Peace-Corps-training-so-we-haven’t-had-good-food-in-two-months style.
