FV Sharing at Girls Scouts Ceremony
Today, Forgotten Voices was finally introduced to the Girls Scouts Overseas troops, where I presented the project to girls scouts of all ages. It was a little more overwhelming than I thought it would be because it was harder than I expected to convey the rawness of all my emotions to 5-year-old girls. But I think it's safe to say that I got my point across, because afterwards, a lot of the girls scouts came to get themselves a copy of both FV books :)
I didn't expect myself to get emotional during the presentation, but after recounting my journey with the elders at Bina Bhakti, I realised just how deep of a connection I have with the elders there.
As I've quoted during my presentation, "To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honours."
Although the opas and omas in Bina Bhakti were never related to us in any way, but they have served our Indonesia in one way or another during their youth. They had their time of strength and glory.
To all who have joined me in the Forgotten Voices journey up to our accomplishments today, I want to say thank you. On behalf of the elders at Bina Bhakti, thank you, thank you thank you.
