There is a simplicity to the people of Mali. They are unlike any people I have yet to meet. They are open and accepting in such a pure way. They are keenly happy. As I have traveled the world and lived in many cultures, I've never before felt the degree of connection as I feel to the people of Mali. Mali and her people have taken hold of my heart and the hearts of my children. I can't explain it, but it is clear we will want to help the people of Mali for the rest of our lives. Papou and Nu are family to me now. I am honored to help in whatever way I am able, the beautiful people of Mali. I truly embrace International peace and understanding. I am honored to be part of NuMali.
