re: social justice
To know Emily was to love her and Im grateful for the time I spent with her and know how much she was loved by my best friend and other pals. Love to all her peeps on this holiday weekend.
if you are inclined to give this holiday season, please consider the Emily Balog Memorial Fund, which supports Peace Corps programs in Paraguay.
"Never abandon hope, and never be ashamed to tell your story. People will listen, and then will remember you. Even if they laugh about you. To your face. They’ll laugh about you with their friends, too. But eventually that chisme or radio so’o(radio meat) –both meaning gossip—will work in your favor. You just have to work the system.” -Emily
