The other day I received a book in the mail from a student that I met in Arizona named Mary Fisher. That's her in the round glasses above, exactly as she looked sitting in the front row of my journaling class. Mary is a good example of the outstanding human beings among us who turn their superpowers toward the light. Specifically, she has been working to help women in Africa who have discovered they have Aids to find a way to provide for themselves and their children. Imagine for a moment how it would feel to look at your hungry children and to have to choose between needed antiviral medicine and food.
Mary can tell you the story of her journey far better than I can summarize it; please go to her website and see if you have it in your heart to purchase some of the jewelry these women are making to support themselves. Each piece of jewelry is signed by the artist and here you can go to see who the artist was and to read their story and see what they look like. Really a sister to sister connection.
Something about this story just spoke to me. Perhaps you will feel the urge to do what you can too. xo
