Day 19

Woke up later this morning; I was really tired yesterday. I got Connor (my 3 year old) Fruit Loops for breakfast and then cooked myself some brown rice. I wonder if I will ever eat brown rice again without thinking about what the world allowed to happen to the Darfuri population during these years. I believe we will be held accountable as global citizens for this. I believe our children and our children’s children will ask us about this terrible tragedy…. What will we tell them? I want to be able to tell them that we showed up, that we didn’t tolerate such a nightmare on our watch. That we worked together with citizens of humanity to take a stand and stop this madness. Tomorrow is my water only day. I am dreading it, as last weeks water only day was tough and it took a couple days for me to regain my strength afterwards. Again, I am baffled that we allow people to live like this.
