Day 2, was pretty tired but got through the day fine.  It is my prayer that this terrible injustice unfolding in Darfur would come to an end and that those who have suffered would see the justice they so richly deserve.  My family went out to dinner; I stayed home to stick to my refugee diet.  I have been starting to share what I am doing with some friends and family.  I have received a wide range of opinions and thoughts.  Most people express concern for me and my health.  This seems a bit silly to me as I think about the small period of time I committed to this and the safety that I will always have immediate access to my “rations food.”  What about the millions who are fasting day after day with no choice?  What about the moms who go days without eating in order to give their small allocations to their young children?  No concern belongs here with me, the concern should be for them, those heroes who despite all odds being stacked against them survive and fight for the day that their lives will be whole again.
