Reflections from the Back Seat Blog by Gretchen Miller Selfridge

GMS-Reflections

In the interest of full transparency, this post highlights the Blog - Reflections from the Back Seat, the personal thoughts, poems, and photographs authored by a family member, my sister-in-law, Gretchen Miller Selfridge. Gretchen serves on the executive board for the organization, Global Strategies for HIV Prevention.  In this role she has traveled extensively in Africa (Liberia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Central African Republic to name just a few).  The posts in her blog are not clinical descriptions of "what I did today" but rather sharing of the thoughts that ran through her mind as she went about her days - meeting with hospital and clinic staffs serving those in poverty.  I am both intrigued and moved by her "muses and rambles from far away".  One of my favorites so far is her poem, Are Questions to be Answered?    Please click over and give it a read, you will not be disappointed!
