I passed out tonight, surely it wasn’t from the lack of calories, I think it had more to do with toxins flushing from my system.  I thought a lot tonight about the mothers in Darfur.  I saw many of them over a year ago and have never lost the image of their strength from my mind.  They are the most courageous women I have ever met.  Day after day they sustain themselves and their children on so little and now even less.  Where is the outcry?  How can this be permitted to continue.  How do we show up for our fellow world citizens…..  for fellow Moms.  I wrestle with the statement our inaction makes about the world.  A devastating reality, I am ashamed.
