Greg Tuke Seattle, Washington State Greg Tuke, Manager, Global Support Team Greg Tuke’s stories A step toward understanding “What should I wear if I do not have a long, loose dress? haha…that may sound trivial but I want to be respectful. Do you get my question?” Lebanon: A better translation Lebanese men pass their citizenship on to their children. Lebanese women, by law in Lebanon, cannot — unless they are married to a Lebanese man. Walking for water “If you visit American city You will find it very pretty Just two things of which you must beware, Don’t drink the water and don’t breathe the air.” Iraq: Voting in Iraq: an act of faith The biggest issue that regularly confounds me each time I vote here in Seattle is finding a postage stamp. Despite this, I have become a strong believer in the mail-in ballot, mostly because I don't have to haul myself to the polls at seven o'clock in the morning before I head off to work. Some of the best of what we humans do Every morning I wake up, grab a cup of hot tea, then read a newspaper filled with stories about some of the worst of what we as humans do. And then I get to spend my workday hearing about some of the best. Iraq: Giving their blood for peace I have been thinking a lot about hope and fear the past few weeks. It is hard to avoid at this time of year. Christmas and New Year’s are holidays of hope. Lebanon: A Palestinian camp — not what you might expect I love to camp. I associate it with mountain meadows, alpine flowers, a warm fire, a cold beer. And the occasional bear. So when I heard I would be going to a Palestinian camp in Lebanon, I had a really hard time wrapping my brain around it.
