A Darfur child survivor’s drawing of what he’d seen

We’ve discovered a couple of Hope Messengers in this story about an inspirational presentation for high schoolers in New Jersey.

The original story was reported by Graelyn Brashear on barnegat.patch.com. You can view it here.

Dr. Jerry Ehrlich, who volunteered with Doctors Without Borders in Darfur in 2004, returned with powerful pictures he secretly snapped and the innocent and powerful drawings of children he treated. He shared both the tragic and hopeful images with the students who were deeply moved. He shared a message of hope and the power of involvement.

Dr. Tamara R. Freeman performed the music of Holocaust, which sustained Jews in the ghettos and concentration camps of World War II Europe.
