By the time this posts I will have crossed past the midnight hour where I am (CST), concluding my three day fast for Darfur. So many thoughts have gone through my mind today. I sit here under lamp light in my home office alone and in thought, humbled and quieted. I sit and think; there are so many of us, who have the power to do great things.
Greatness is not about being larger than life, greatness is found in the simple actions, in decisions made that don’t stand out on the front page, the choices we make when no one is watching in order to give us accolades. There is greatness in the people living in Darfur right now at this very moment. Some will eat tonight, many will not. Most are looking directly at a future without any signs of hope.
If you are like me, you can choose to put aside creature comforts for a few days and join a fast, who knows maybe that will be all you do, or maybe it will inspire a revelation in you. Thank you to everyone who has already pledged there actions to this cause, I hope to see that as my fast day concludes many others are beginning.
