He traveled through nine former Soviet Republics in Eurasia, from the Baltic Sea down to the Black and Caspian seas.He had reason to and did write his opinions on post-Communist governance, the geopolitical beginning of the Ukraine Civil War and the failed attempts to clean up the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.“It’s amazing, though, that nature takes back over the planet,” he said, in speaking of the nuclear disaster.Webster has traveled the world over and has seen poverty, crime, and corruption in many countries and has seen how people have overcome those conditions with “great spirit.”And, he has come to grips with his own mortality and how he has made sure that his affairs are in order.In fact, he has written his own obituary, “age 96,” he concluded.“I once almost ‘bought the farm,’ and I realized I had to get things ‘in order,’” Webster told the Rotarians. “None of us will get out of this world alive.
