They and all the other children living in Agu Na Ebere deserve to have the same opportunities children living in the U.S. have. Yet for most, clean water, food, clothing, and education are ‘privileges.’ When I look at their pictures, I know that my job is to do everything I can to ensure that one day clean water, food, clothing, and education become ‘rights’ for all and not ‘privilege’ for some. One person may not be able to do it alone, but the children we educate today will become the leaders who can make it happen tomorrow. To quote 1 John 3:17, ‘Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.’” When Lucy is not involved with LLEM, she enjoys walking the beach, “trolling” thrift stores/flea markets, and then using her “finds” for “do it yourself” home projects.
