Darfur Fast for Life

We fast in solidarity with the hungry and starving in Darfur and for lasting peace in Sudan

Day 24 — Mother’s Day

May 10, 2009 By: Admin Category: Shannon Sedgwick Davis

My prayer for today is that all mothers will join together in standing up for the mothers of Darfur. That as moms we will no longer tolerate children dying at the hand of evil. I feel so blessed to be a mom and at the same time empowered. Being a mother is an incredibly empowering thing. My heart is not my own but rather it resides in the bodies of my little 3 year old and 4 month old….. so much so that I can’t imagine the intense pain I would feel if I was unable to protect and provide for my children. I would be crying out for help, help from anywhere, help from everywhere. My hope would rest in knowing there are mothers all across the globe who would understand the desperation I felt and would show up in support. I pray that as mothers we show up and show up now.

  1. Hi Shannon, I liked your video testament. I hope you are feeling okay and want to applaud you for your courage to continue with the fasting. I hope everyones efforts will bring more attention to Darfur and that Obama will send troops to protect the innocent lives of the men, women and children who continue to suffer persecution and starvation. What kind of world would allow this to happen? It makes me sick to my stomach.
