I read an amazing article in O Magazine (Dec) about a documentary about a group of ordinary Liberian women who managed to stop the country's 14-year civil war. Pray the Devil Back to Hell tells the story of Gbowee, a mother of five, who realized the war kept her children in poverty their entire lives. She took action with street marches and prayer vigils and created a movement that stopped the civil war.
What an extraordinary example of what we can do and how every action can make a difference in the world. When I have the listing of when the movie will be back in Portland, I will let you know.
