It seems there was a change that happened last night………I am no longer consumed with hunger and thoughts of food, those have been replaced by hunger for knowledge and action. I am quiet today, a place of compassion……I want to act, I sent texts to Clinton, I sent press releases I am emailing my team mates, restaurants, FB…..but I am quiet, listening….I have read and been inspired by every blog, comment, story and experience. I feel connected to Darfuri’s, I feel as connected as if I were touching them. This will forever change me for the better, I will NEVER FORGET, I will forever be grateful for Mia’s bravity, courage, experience, and self sacrifice. I will forever be grateful to SGN for giving me the opportunity to push myself and my family, for helping me to empower and educate others. Yesterday I was unsure if I could follow through with my three weeks, today I know I will extend. today I will act, my son will act, my husband will act, tomorrow we will act and again and again. I am responsible for the Darfuri as a fellow human, how can I not acknowledge our interconnectedness, how could I sit and eat my dinner knowing that while doing so others are dying, sickness is spreading, starving children are in agony. I will act, educate and empower others to do the same. I WILL NOT QUIT….
