Thanks for the comments!!!

It is wonderful (and quite humbling) to see that people are actually checking in on the site and reading the entries! Some of the comments have such wonderful questions, and I definitely want to continue the conversations. I've started responding to comments with an additional comment of my own. I will try to get to as many as I can, but internet time is short and sacred, so I'll see how far I can get.

Thanks again for all the support, kind words, and concern. Your interest in my experience is extremely motivating!

My Dearest Emily,

You continue to “wow” me with your unyielding work, open mind, and compassionate heart on a path that supports and generates gender equality. Your work in Latin America to the U.S./ Mexico border and now in Liberia, offer not just you, but so many of us, the gift of awareness. We know not yet how all of the pieces of your journey will come together, but we do know that each piece is opening up new possibilities and hope for all you advocate for and for all of us whom you give the gift of awareness. I am curious to learn about the parallels, and even the inconsistencies, in the fight for gender equality that you find across the different countries and cultures you’ve worked with and for. I look forward to much conversation and dialogue when you return home.

I love you & am praying for your cause, for your safety, for your heart always.

Keep on fighting the good fight!
