The beginning...

I begin this journey with the following quote from Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi,
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world".

So, I did! I picked up and moved to Cameroun to be and campaign with my husband.
I am moved beyond words to be on this beautiful continent. I know that my new life will be the greatest challenge of my life, and in order to more eloquently express my feelings I offer the following,

Our Deepest Fear

by Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
We both look forward to all Camerounians walking and sharing in this undertaking with us.

God Bless Cameroun and Africa!
