A friend recently said to me, “You are a courageous woman to go to Mexico as you do.”
I go because I want to learn more about the people. I want to see how they are involved with Fair Trade, microfinance, cooperatives, and similar tools that promote sustainable development. When I learn more about the people involved, my writing, teaching, and public speaking are more accurate and alive. By interacting with good people, I avoid thinking myself into fear. The people in Mexico and elsewhere know that I care, and they welcome me in loving ways. I hope that you will find similar warm welcomes during all of your travels.
