McDonald addressed 50 senior high school students from all over the country, brought to Washington, D.C. by the National Youth and Leadership Forum, to look at and learn about aspects of National Security,  Intelligence, Defense and Diplomacy. After hearing from Ambassador McDonald about life as a career diplomat, work in international organizations such as the United Nations and its specialized agencies as well as the steadily growing influence of non-government agencies in the field of conflict resolution, the students had an opportunity to use the remaining time for a question and answer period which testified to their great interest in serving their country and their willingness to learn to utilize tools of critical thinking, analysis and reflection to achieve their individual goals. Several students stayed behind to ask further questions."
