^THIS is real. This happens every day. If you are a woman OR a man this affects you. If you have a sister, wife, daughter, mother, etc., this affects you. If you can’t walk around at night without fear and your finger on the nozzle of pepper…

"One girl who has been harmed by this brutal practice is one too many". 

Angélique Kidjo, Grammy Award-winning singer and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador, explains why you should raise your voice against female genital mutilation in this guest post on the UN blog.

Every day I spend time with this little one I am more & more inspired and humbled by her. Leilani has experienced cancer, more bouts of chemotherapy than you can count on your fingers, and has spent far too much time in a hospital for an 8 year old. You would never guess that her life was revolved around her hindering health, though. She has so much spirit and is ready to spend every moment living and laughing. She shuns talking about her health issues and would rather not sulk in self-pity. On top of just having the privilege of knowing such a strong young girl, her mother asked if I’d want to be her godmother today. I am honored beyond what words can describe. It’s so easy to lose yourself in your own problems & forget that there is a life worthing living, soaking in every second, putting to past all of the negativity we hold on to… Leilani is living proof that life is never too terrible to not smile, & every new day is a gift. Thank you for that, you are a beautiful ray of sunshine on this ever-gloomy planet. I hope anyone that reads this who is affected by a loved one with cancer or any sickness can relate! And everyone else in between, too :)
~peace & love

every day I unpack and pack and move and fly and then land and unpack again, but someday I will pack, go home, and unpack forever
