We fast in solidarity with the people of Darfur because they do not have a choice. We fast as a personal expression of outrage at a world that has allowed the suffering of millions of innocent people. We fast because as we simply watched, Darfur’s defenseless people were forced into wretched camps where today they are facing starvation and disease. We fast because those in positions of authority who know what is right and just, could and should do more to alleviate their suffering and bring peace, protection, and justice to the people of Sudan.

We fast for Darfur’s courageous people —because we yearn for a world where human rights are respected and a life of dignity is the legacy for every man, woman and child.

    Fasting for starving people??? Please take the time and make the effort to send the food that you are not eating to the hungry people. Suggestion—Since you will most likely make more money in 2 years than I will make in a life time,,,consider hiring someone like me to make sure the food gets there.

    My apologies for previous post…it is off of my blog and reading it again I realised that what flys on a blog as another example of my self deprecating humor read by people who know you sounds different to a stranger.

    While I understand why aid workers feel that it would be a good idea to send money to organisations instead of spending money on a doctor monitored fast I think it is unfair to assume that one action excludes the other. I myself tho a member of the working poor stil manage to make small contributions. Fasting won’t be a substitute .

    I have been trying to discuss Dafur with my friends for quite awhile. They just roll their eyes and change the subject.When I decided to fast I told my friends not because I expected any support and certainly not understanding . I was sure they would find it to be an act of self indulgence and self importance . I just wanted to warn people that I will be cranky.

    I was amazed to find that for the first time they are willing to listen to me . The idea that I would not eat for 2 days just to protest the treatment of people I don’t even know seems to strike a chord with them.

    So while I don’t have any illusions that my going hungry for a couple of days will change the world it may in some way influence at least a couple of people into at least listening and maybe eventually even taking action.

    All I can do is hope.

  6. This is a wonderful thing, and am surprised that everyone is jumping on board like this is such a new thing. Catholics have been doing this for over 2,ooo years, to offer up as a sacrifice going without food in prayer for those who need it. Many have made fun of this practice because they didn’t understand it. I am glad that people at least understand fasting, if even only on a level of solidarity is a good thing. Yet,I also would hope those that are fasting understand it as a much deeper offering and prayer as we have known and practiced for years. To deny oneself out of love for another’s suffering.

    I’m happy to help in anyway I can and this is a small thing I can do to help. I wish I could be there in Washington but I will do everything I can to help bring awareness about the plight in Darfur and contact my local congress and senate.
    Love,
    Nessie
