I was pleased to catch a glimpse of the sunrise yesterday. It was a good reminder of the beautiful world we live in. I have to say the last few weeks have been tough. And in tough times in can be hard to see the beauty in anything. Yes, there have been good times, but there have been a lot of difficult and challenging times. Children dying unnecessarily. Colleagues refusing to work together. Lack of motivation for people to do their work. Working in a healthcare system that just does not function as it should. We are trying, but it's not easy. At times it is hard to discern whether or not we are making a difference. However, I am not going to give up. I have invested far too much to give up now! Despite the difficulties, I do love this place and the people and know that with time things will continue to improve. I know that in the middle of the suffering and injustice that takes place, there is still hope. Hope for a better place. Hope for a brighter future. Hope for the children of Sierra Leone. Here's to HOPE.
