    This is really awesome,I like the posts about the progress of your fast and vigil. I was at on in DC last month and talked to alot of great people, and wish I had heard about this one so I could have made it down in time. I’ve learned alot about what has happened in Darfur lately, and am really happy that you guys are working to get it public and to stop the killings.
