Hi Maureen,I am inspired that you are there with loved ones,experiencing such a different side of the World.Poverty is such an outrage of suffering; especially in such an extreme as there.My own most shocking experiences were in the slums of Calcutta…The dignity of the people that Fate has placed there is a humbling reminder of the beauty of human Spirit everywhere…Do not be overwhelmed; take care of yourself,and your loved ones…give what you can…remember the Serenity prayer.Keep writing your Blog…Peter
Maureen– i am sitting here in tears after reading your words–what a picture you are able to paint for us— such a slice of life! The beauty of the human heart in the heart of abject poverty. So valuable to be reminded of our affluence, mostly taken for granted… i am grateful.
Keep writing. You are a good writer. i know you will give your love and support as you are able, everywhere you go. Love you so much.
I guess my comment this morning never made it through. reading your blog reminds me of when I first went to Liberia in 1974. Can’t wait to hear more of your time there. I know you are feeling their love as you give then your love.
I had no idea you were such a skilled writer. All the information is hard to take in. How intertwined we all are. I’m so happy for you that you are able to do this. We miss you. Can’t wait to read more.
It has to be so hard on you to see such seemingly unnecessary suffering. Praying you will be able to hold up.
Wow! What an adventure… thinking of you. Stay strong and healthy. Love you and thanks for your amazing story. Lu
