Change

I’m back from the DRC, a changed person, but in ways I cannot yet fully express.

A few days ago, the world changed because of the election of a new American president.
A few days ago, my world changed because of the Congolese people.

“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.”

I hope Obamas words give us all hope for the future. I have seen some incredible things in the past few weeks in the DR Congo. All things are still possible. Another world is possible.
