THE GOOD DOCTORS

Hola,

Just a quick hello and to introduce you to the 'good doctors' or the 'saints of Somalia'...Maybe you've heard of them {I just heard of them now...I agree, living under the rock :)) }

They are Doctor Hawa Abdi and Doctor Deqo Mohammed,  a mom and a daughter who are inspiring the world with their love, strength and goodness...

Even in the presence of deep unrest in Somalia, when most people left town, these heroines stayed back to help their people. They had a choice and they choose to stay... 
Was wondering if I would do the same if faced with similar circumstances? Would you?

I can hear the voice of doubt  saying; do you want to get killed, or don't you care for family or friends or I'm not strong, or I can't do it....etc.

Uhmm, let Dr. Hawa and Dr. Deqo inspire us to action. Let their story encourage us to seek ways to help people no matter the circumstances we find ourselves in; and to believe in our own inner voice and strength.

So, which would you choose in the face of a great challenge- stay, fight, and be a hero or run?

Even if it's scary, I will stay (By God's grace of course). You?

Thank you so much for reading...Hugs!!!
