Voices: The Beauty of "We"

November 26, 2008

Each night, we sleep beneath the stars. In Niger they are immense, brilliant, complex. It seems as if only street poetry could solve the trigonometry of the heavens...

I have committed myself to these stars, that make speech vanish like vapor, these stars that bless and reaffirm the beauty of "we." After about three weeks, I am learning to call Niger home. The people here are incredibly warm and the sense of community... the sense of "we"... is very strong.
