In the midst of a national election campaign (and on the 11th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center), it is vital to remember that America is part of the wider world community. Globalization continues to advance, and President Obama has declared that the Pacific Region will be the focus of U.S. foreign policy.
From Australia, America's best friend and strongest ally in the Pacific, comes Dr. Sue Wareham, a physician and life-long peace activist, to share her perspectives about what reciprocity between nation-states means in these challenging times. In 2006, the Australian government awarded Dr. Wareham the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) "for service to the community and to the peace movement," in particular for her 10 years as President of the Australian chapter of the Medical Association for the Prevention of War (MAPW), which is the Australian affiliate of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW), the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985.
