I got to see Mimi Hughes at the Madison County-Huntsville City Public Library on Wednesday. She had tons of pictures of her Danube and Drava swims. Mimi started off her talk by quoting Ghandi — that we must be the change we wish to see in the world. I left keeping in my head that media in Europe attended to this almost 50-year-old (at the time — summer 2006) swimmer chugging along each day along the 1,776 miles of flooded and polluted river, while the U.S. media wasn’t too interested. This needs to be rectified.
