Parents, teachers and teenage girls held a candlelight vigil in Loitoktok, hoping to light up the darkness of cultural attitudes towards a traditional practice that is both physically and mentally hurting young Maasai girls.

Tears of joy are rolling down my face Dear Heart! I am so happy that people are speaking out and others are listening. Bless those girls who have been saved this year. Hopefully the number will continue to grow. We must fight to keep them safe in years to come.
Oh how wonderful it feels to cry out of happiness instead of despare! When people work together miracles really can happen.
I am so grateful for all the people from all over the world who stepped up and have been helping with this campaign.
This was not even a well planned or advanced campaign. Lucy and I were talking and crying and I started ... See Moredrafting what at first was to be a petition. We realized that there was no time for that and it changed to the current letter campaign.
Just think what we can accomplish with advanced planning!
