Comments are off for this post.
Last October, after an intense, bizarre and exhausting day covering the election, I came home and told my husband Peter I needed to regroup. I was suffocating from superficiality. I needed to reset my heart, reconnect with him, and do something together as a couple to the benefit of other people. So we booked a five-day trip. Our destination: Cotonou, Benin in West Africa, to visit Mercy Ships.  Mercy Ships is a surgical hospital ship whose mission is to bring health and healing to the forgotten poor. We’ve been involved with the group for several years. For this visit, we […]

Comments are off for this post.
Their fight began as early as the late 19th century, when some took to the battlefields and one queen even led an armed rebellion against the British. They also fought a domestic battle against oppressive traditions, such as sati (the burning of a wife on her husband’s funeral pyre) and child marriage. Sadly, the latter still exists today.

Woman With StomachacheImage: Getty Images/iStockphoto Americans are taught to be ashamed of their loose bowels but there is no greater cathartic pleasure than telling someone your story of digestive woe.
