Day 3. Feeling better when I got up this morning.
It truly helps to watch a video on YouTube to be reminded of the importance of this issue. As you watch this video please don’t overlook the harsh landscape, the challenges of the land in itself – and then see the faces – the faces who can’t answer why. Or what next. Or what if. It is our responsibility to be there for those so so so less fortunate. The other images of their smiles and their hope is a reminder that their spirits are intact. But for how long? To have a young musician come and perform is hope. What other hope will we bring? Living Darfur
Mia Farrow has recorded a video of her experience in Day 3 of the fast. She urges us each to call the White House and protest. View her latest comments.
To call the White House and protest, call 1-800-GENOCIDE (436-6243) where you’ll receive instructions on how to choose the elected officials you want to call. It’s simple. It’s important. When you call that number, you’ll be given information and connected to your representative or senator (based on your zip code). You can also connect to the White House, which I chose to do but it is now closed. Call between 9-5 PM EST.
To call the White House directly, dial 202-456-1111.
President Obama has appointed a Special Envoy for Darfur – so if you do call the White House, please thank him for this important step, but tell him we need to get our humanitarian organizations back in to help people who have zero resources.
And we continue to do what we can, where we are, with what we have, in the time we have left.
