Write for Rights

Last night we went to the Amnesty International Write for Rights event at our local community centre.

It was a great evening, with some knowledgeable and passionate speakers, a couple of wonderful local bands, petitions to sign, greeting cards to write to prisoners of conscience, a silent auction, a concession stand, and more.

Callum enjoyed the music, and he spent quite a bit of time working on his own letters and writing on his face. Today he is enamoured of pencils and I think that's awesome.


And David didn't want to leave. He was signing petitions, listening to the speakers, swaying to the music and enjoying his time with the group. It was his first Write for Rights event and he is hooked. My husband is an amazing man who embraces new things, learning and loving as he goes. Yay for me and my boy to have such a man in our lives! Gush.

If you haven't had a chance to attend an Amnesty event, we highly recommend them.

If you want peace, work for justice.
