Today was my water only day. I thought it wouldn’t be that tough since I had already gone so many days on such few calories on the refugee diet. I was wrong. Today was really tough; I did pretty good till around 2 and then felt really hungry. By 7 tonight I started to get really dizzy and lightheaded. It baffles me that people live, survive and care for their children on so much less. It is truly convicting. I am going to go to bed soon because of the dizziness and wake up back on the refugee rations. Mia, I am so impressed with you and thinking of you constantly today as this is incredibly difficult.

  1. Some friends of mine and myself did not eat for just one day and it was amazing the perpective we all gained. The comfort we experienced knowing food was being prepared and we’d be able to eat was humbling and thankful as so many do not know when or if they will be able to eat… Our eyes are open wider now. Thank you to all of those with the courage to fast for 21 days. My prayers all of my hope go out to those in Darfur. You are always in my thoughts.
