Chris and I are on our way to the Chad/Darfur border. We have not left the US, though. We’re in the beautiful city of Atlanta, GA, hanging out at the airport (actually, I have not hooked up with Chris, but he should be around here). One of these days, I have to come to stay for a few days in Atlanta, so I can learn from my good friend and amazing activist Cynthia Gentry. We met through O.net, and she inspired me to not accept obstacles but to see them as opportunities to be creative.
From GA, our next stop is Paris, France. My brother Javier joked at the Thanks Giving gathering my family held this past Friday (so I could be a part of it) that I might get to Paris and say, “forget Darfur, I’m staying in Paris!” :) Not this time, but maybe in the future, with my family (Zahara, Mimi, Gabo, and Irais), I’ll see more than the Paris airport.
Please stay tuned and be ready to become actively involved. The situation in Darfur continues to deteriorate, and the lives of millions are in more than grave danger. When we make NOISE together, we will be heard.
Thanks to all that have been so supportive. I’ll be in touch, and I hope you will be also.
