I’m in week 2 of fundraising and my body feels to still be caught in a duality of worlds holding both excitement/ energy with pure exhaustion, fulfillment in connecting with so many people and yet experiencing disappointment in organization’s tied with bureaucracy “dis” connection to the peoples right to self determination, to feel the burning passion behind a vision of hope and holding the searing doubt of others in my heart. People keep asking me why are you taking this on, which I can honestly reply in the most simplistic and complex terms…because it needs to be.

Sometimes we can’t explain what moves us to make decisions but if it brings us that much closer to humility for each other , keep on keeping on…and if your not here to help…get out of the way…
