I was at an event tonight that showcased war, women and the resilience of the human spirit. Rama Mani was sharing her poetry of vignettes of women caught in conflict around the world, portraying their ability to hang on to hope. Interspersed with this were songs and drumming by various performers. This was all followed by a discussion.
I met a woman I had been in South Africa with and she said that she felt like there were so many good things happening in our city around important issues. I agreed. I am definitely busy but it all seems good.
What brings you hope in the midst of despair?
