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

Yesterday on water only was very hard, but I did it! I’ve always stayed away from fasting because I always felt it was something I just couldn’t do. I love food too much. I always gave money instead. Well, what an experience. It threw me right into the experience, right alongside the Darfurians — right into the trenches with them.

I woke up at 4:00a.m and couldn’t wait to resume my liquid diet… Only to find out I couldn’t guzzle down the cranberry juice like I thought, so I sipped.

I am so humbled. This really is a great experience.
