A glowing letter and tribute to Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who was jailed for refusing to deny her Christian faith and her marriage to a Christian man. Because her father was a Muslim, Ibrahim was required to follow in his faith; however that father had abandoned the family years ago and Meriam was raised as a Christian by her mother.
She is indeed a brave woman, one we could all emulate.
Read the letter; it is well worth it.
On behalf of all African women, I thank you Meriam Ibrahim, for showing the world the indomitable courage that is at the core of authentic femininity. I say this because your pain and persecution were tied so firmly to your femininity. And so your triumph was a most powerful witness to life, to motherhood, to marriage, to love and to faith.
