Traveling to New York today to attend the James Mwape Peer Awards on Saturday night. I am looking forward to meeting James, his family and other Zambians who will be there. I have attached a photo of a young boy who always greeted me with the famous Zambian smile when I visited his village. That was in 2003. One day I came to the village and he was not there. Moses had died of Malaria the week before. He is one of my motivations that have kept me going back to Zambia for 15 years.
