Kolkata, India, circa 2007
Today, I feel
Almost seven years ago, I swore I would make the world a better place for these beautiful young women. I promised that I would get the education needed to make a sustainable difference, as too many communities have suffered at the hands of well-intentioned idealists imposing their own agenda. But working through my master's degree, I realize that I still don't have the answers - just more questions about why and how and when and where. And these sweet faces deserve someone more qualified than me; won't a smarter, stronger, wiser woman take the reigns?
Maybe there aren't any answers. Maybe the journey only requires that we keep asking questions.
