“This is what acute malnutrition looks like”
My 17-year-old son Isaiah is at a nearby boarding school. This is part of an email from his teacher and advisor.
“A couple of days ago, Isaiah announced (in a very mature and professional manner) that he was going to join you for one day on a hunger strike to bring attention to Darfur. As promised, he went for 24 hours without eating, and he did it very stoically.”
I am a very proud mother.
