After the Anderson Cooper interview: Supa's really starting to admire this chick. As a woman, mother, & humanitarian. Her quest and determination reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
"I am only one
but I am one
I cannot do everything,
but I can do something
and I will not refuse
to do the something
I can do."
It's always been my dream/objective to be of service to those in need - here and abroad. (Africa, in particular) Though watching the horror and pain of people of certain regions, I begin to doubt the ability of my effectiveness...the images damn near annihilate me emotionally. Perhaps the strength comes in one simple, brave, compassionate act at a time...we'll see.
I use to think I could save the world
now I'm simply trying
to save myself.....
Let's strive to pay it forward, blogger fam....
