The contrast is just too much.
I awoke today in a clean, dry bed with white sheets. I know how most Liberians awoke today – on a mattress on the ground without sheets. I spent my first hour today in prayer and meditation and reading treasured spiritual writings, and documenting this day in my ever present journal. I know how most Liberians started their day – walking for water and starting to cook on the coal pot outside their home. I went to the gym to exercise. I know how Liberians stay fit – the reality of their lives keeps them fit. I hosted many for a pizza lunch after working on the Skateboarding Liberia Project. At the same time, I heard from two treasured Liberian friends today whose families have not had food for a week; “We eat to live Ma Deborah,” David said, yet he trusts God completely and is so full of gratitude. I visited the home of Pastor Allison, one of my son Moses’ teachers, and witnessed Moses’ current living reality – he needs bed sheets and so much more, as does everyone in the home where he is now staying.
I have been wondering about how best to present our Foundation for Women End of Year Giving Request to all of you our treasured supporters and friends… today changed all of that. People I know and love here in Liberia do not have food. The Foundation for Women can do something about that. WE can do something about that.
Please join me in holding hands together – please join me in knowing that we are one human family – please join me in believing WE is the only way… for my namesake Deborah and all beings…

“Faith is our assurance that there is a Divine plan of infinite love at work even in the most challenging moments, and that we are a part of that plan. Faith gives us the confidence to move ahead with vast visions in the face of enormous odds; it is an invitation to work in active partnership with the Divine in service of a better world.” - Women, Spirituality and Transformative Leadership
