    Posted on behalf of Susan Johnson:

    Great initiative and I hope it works out as you envision and more. The FS needs to cultivate and grows its own rich, diverse and multidimensional identity and purpose as a special cadre of professional people, and their families including the four-footed or winged varieties in diplomatic service for the USA. That identity has been blurred in the last two decades, to the point where expressing rightful pride in the Foreign Service and in being part of it is too often labeled “offensive” to others. That notion is nonsense and needs to be pushed back. Some think that the FS is “dead”. I prefer to see it like a Phoenix, able to rise again and soar if its members want that and can act collectively.
