Dear President Obama,

I am now on day 11 of a 21 day fast for Darfur. Liquids only: about 400 calories a day.

I’m not sure what an activist is supposed to look like, but I never thought it would be me. I can step aside no longer.

I’m a 51 year old professional woman who is moved to ask you to change the atrocities being committed in Darfur. I co-founded the Itafari Foundation for the people of Rwanda and have spoken at the United Nations about our need to help those who have been ignored and abused. Darfur continues to be the reality that nothing is truly being done.

In addition to running a Foundation with no financial gain or recompense for my expenses or actions, I am an executive coach and international speaker. My topic and passion: communication and leadership.

I believe in you and ask for your focus and the focus of the Administration on this issue. Please. But I’m also a pragmatic businesswoman who knows this is not just a phone call or a speech. Please put resources towards getting the humanitarian groups back into the Darfur region, and then, end this genocide.

Working in Rwanda teaches me that if action is not taken, we will look back and regret what we did not have time to correct.

Thank you Mr. President. I know you can do this.
