On a brighter note, Shutter Sisters Jen Lemen and Stephanie Roberts are vying for their dream assignment, Picture Hope. Register here, then cast your vote here. It takes only a few seconds and can help push their dream closer to reality.
From Stephanie's website: "Jen Lemen and I, supported by our Shutter Sisters, are on a mission to find hope in unlikely places. Our dream assignment will take a community of dreamers on a journey to five continents to find the essence of hope – that elusive quality that makes it possible to believe this is not the end of your story no matter how simple your stress or profound your tragedy. We'll search for hope in the lives of the very people who have had every reason to abandon hope as nothing more than wishful thinking. We'll begin in northeastern Rwanda in a quiet village where two young girls wait to be reunited with a mother they've been missing for over three years. Our journey ends in the hills of Nepal where an American teenager became the mother of twenty orphans when she decided to follow her heart."
At present, Picture Hope is in third place in the Name Your Dream Assignment competition. Please help it spring forward by casting your vote today. Thank you!
