President George W. Bush talks with Dayna Curry, center, and Heather Mercer in the Oval Office Nov. 26. The two humanitarian workers recently returned to the United States after being held captive by the Taliban regime for three months. "Heather Mercer and Dayna Curry decided to go to help people who needed help," said the President in his remarks to the media. "Their faith led them to Afghanistan. One woman who knows them best put it this way: they had a calling to serve the poorest of the poor, and Afghanistan is where that calling took them.". White House photo by Eric Draper.
