My first Premier

I had the pleasure of seeing former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev today at Google. Mr. Gorbachev was invited as a guest speaker on the Google campus in Mt. View. There was a large crowd filling the auditorium.

Mr. Gorbachev spoke about his new Green Cross environmental initiaitive, as well as responding to questions asked by Google CEO Eric Schmidt about the world stage, politics, and his leadership and background. It was an amazing experience to be so close to someone who had done so much for shaping the world as we know it today. I found myself thinking how lucky I am to get to experience such things, and hoping that more influential leaders like him will follow, to restore this country and our world to a unified, peaceful existence.
