Today I return to the Sudan Embassy, DC Darfur Vigil after my week of filling in for Ellen, my daily support, so she could visit her mom and daughter and grand daughter down south. I want to do what I can to keep the pressure / attention on among my northwest DC community. I expect to be at the Embassy 24/6 for many, many, many months. I pray that the new French Gov, focus at the G8, and selfish China (Olympics) combine at long last for some substantial progress - a peace agreement and 20,000+ police on the ground - NOW. We'll never have a better chance than we do now.
