Half the Sky is a collection of stories about heros, written by Pulitzer prize winning NY Times columnists and authors, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. The two are married and often write that treasured breed of articles....the kind that are full of facts that once heard, leave you seeing things that were invisible before.Our friend Amber Vandermeulen, a third grade teacher in the Kent school system, said that she and her husband had just read Half the Sky to one another on their last road-trip and she thought I might like it. Knowing nothing about it, I cracked it open. ...everything was forever changed.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. -Helen Keller
