Motivated by Meredith

This past week has been promising for my friends in Darfur. Unfortunately, my uncle passed away last week as well, so I have been distracted from writing on this blog. However, there has been some positive momemtum.

I had the privilege of sharing my passion with a packed house at Meredith College this past week. It was refreshing to see so many eager faces interested in learning more about Darfur, the possible solutions and how students can play a role in ending the conflict. A credit to the organizers, the event was well planned and offered me a great platform to share my heart. The questions from the audience were intelligent and engaged and I thought the panel discussion afterward offered a diverse range of opinions. One of the first events of its kind at this all-girl school, I hope that it is a great launching point for greater awareness and compassion on this campus.

This event motivated me and encouraged me. It was great to see a room full of men and women who might have wandered in without a clue, but who left an enaged global citizen.
