We Are One

I know it's late notice, but tonight on "60 Minutes", the work of a fantastic organization, Women for Women International, is being featured on a piece about the DR Congo. I'm sure the informed readers of SLB are aware of the human rights violations in the form of an epidemic of rape and mutilation of women and children.

I've been involved with Women for Women International for some time now.

Al Franken interviewed founder/CEO Zainab Salbi on his radio show numerous times and her story is compelling and inspirational, as a survivor of the Saddam Hussein era in Iraq. Yet the work of this organization is even more inspiring, and there are many "Stories From the Front" on their site.

One person really CAN make a difference for one other person. Please take a minute to look over their website. Thanks alot.
