Yoga for Congo Women

I can’t write about it yet.

I will soon.  But for now, the emotions are too strong.

What I really want to say tonight, though, to each and every one of you who showed up today:

I love you.  More today than I thought I could love people.  I don’t know quite how to describe it.  But thank you.  Just thank you.  Some of you shared things with me that were so sacred and that I needed more than you will ever know.

    I really really want to start this up again. :-) Even though it was small, it was really good. I want to do even more.

  3. This is wonderful. The work you do here is another way to fight violence in the home and in society. DRC wars destroyed lives of many girls and women and the abusers have never been taken to justice. The few who were, were seen the following day walking around; in the same village with their victims. They abuse them more, we need justice in this country. You and me can make a change on this issue, educate the women and the girls victims of such barbarities.

  4. Women are human beings just like men. They would like to live peacefully in their homes and in society without being abused by their husbands or being raped by the people they know. The case of the DRC remains awful and a shame to the world. Being a woman or a girl is not a sin or a mistake; these noble human beings should be given full respect and protection in their respective communities. But because of masculinities in society, they become second class people, deserving all forms of atrocities commanded by men. In a war torn society like the DRC, they become like sexual objects. And where has the justice of this country gone? And why the minerals that could be used to save lives of these women and girls has become the origin of their Calvary?
