I often leave training sessions and workshops feeling disappointed and frustrated. Last night, I thought I would feel tired, but actually I felt refreshed and excited that I had participated in something so important and meaningful. I talked at length with my husband and two teenage daughters about some of the issues and topics. We also discussed the issue of silence and the genocide in Darfur. My husband and daughters are taking flyers and postcards and have committed to talk to their colleagues and friends about the issue.
