amanda lindhout in ottawa

if you follow this blog, you know i have a huge amount of respect and admiration for amanda.

her 15 month captivity captured the headlines but it is what she has created since returning home that has captured the hearts and imagination of many.

tonight, i get to listen to amanda speak about her goal of educating and empowering women.

she is focusing her attention on the very women of the country that challenged her so much, somalia, through her Global Enrichment Foundation and the Somali Women’s Scholarship program.

however, the lessons of forgiveness and of change that she is sharing? they can be applied to many, many situations in our own communities and around the globe.

if you are in the ottawa area, think about attending.
