Serbia's story is one of turmoil and uncertainty that seems, at first, far removed from the lives we live here in Indiana. But as Judy O'Bannon discovered when she went to Serbia, the basic needs and desires that shape us, be we Serb or Hoosier, are universal, and we can see ourselves in their experiences. Judy led a delegation from Ambassadors for Children to Serbia, at the invitation of the Crown Prince and Princess of Yugoslavia, who have recently repatriated to their homeland. The hope of the royalty is shared by Serbians: to make a transition from their war-torn past to become a peaceful, prosperous part of mainstream Europe.

Turkey is a country that straddles two continents. Its culture reflects that duality. Judy O'Bannon traveled with a group of Hoosiers at the invitation of the Indianapolis-based Holy Dove Foundation this summer, as a way of building bridges of understanding between our country and the Islamic world of Turkey.
Regarding the program's unusual title, Judy noted that bridges emerged as a memorable image from her journey. A bridge in Bosphorous connects the continents of Asia and Europe – and bridges connect the two sides of Istanbul. A bridge of sorts has been created between Indiana and Turkey as a result of this journey – made possible in very real terms through the Internet. "The world is really shrinking, and we are truly becoming more and more connected," said O'Bannon.
