My Favorite Excerpts
"Over the years I've come to realize that when you make people laugh, they allow you to touch them in ways you ordinarily could not."
"I believe, I know, that if you have unshakable faith in yourself, in your sisters and in the possibility of change, you can do almost anything."
I recommend this book whether you are down on your luck or looking for a new friend for which to cheer, this book has many nuggets of golden knowledge for each mind to wrap itself around.
Reading is critical to informing one's self but especially the stories of women, the stories that aren't yet told in the world's history books. Had I never made met this amazing woman via her written word who knows if I ever would have informed myself on the situation in Liberia. Giving yourself new lenses with which to see the world is done by ferociously reading!
