thank you for your efforts and for journaling those efforts in a blog. the blog craze is an interesting one, to say the least. i, too, have fell victim to it.
as a caseworker for refugees in texas, i look forward to reading about your endeavors in sierra leone. i wish you and your team the best of luck!

You are doing the right thing! Hang in there and know that a lot of people are supporting you. The more exposure you can bring to this, the better and who better to take along with you than, Angelina Jolie. I look forward to following along in this blog on your progress and learning more about the situation in Sierra Leone. I am embarrased that our media and journalists here in the US are not covering these issues more. We have no clue of what is going on outside of the US and it is sad to me. We sit here safe and unaware of conflict and war, but through you helping educate, people like myself can become involved and help you & Angelina make a difference - thank you! Be Safe!

as a mother and wife, thank you. As a person of this little blue marble, thank you. You are showing a way to act and not despair. I will be watching and learning too.

Indeed, the more exposure you can get, the better. Thank you for doing such a great job with Witness, and in Sierra Leone right now. I hope you will succeed in your mission, as these truth and reconciliation processes can only have a lasting effect when governement and the international community both get involved. And thank you to Miss Jolie too, always so graceful as to use her celebrity for the good fight.
Looking forward to reading your next post. Good Luck.

My Best Wishes to you all in Sierra Leone. There is so much devastation in that area of the world, and I commend your team for their important work. Here's to the President of Sierra Leone incorporating TRC's recommendations.

Mommy, I love you. And I want you to come home and see my new lunch bag.

New York


Gillian, you rock! We love you in Washinton, D.C. Jack and Grace just turned two and said "ex-cell-ent" when they heard about your work. Get your work done and come home and see that lunch bag!


It is outstanding what you guys are doing! Please don't give up or get discouraged. I know it's easier said than done. It's really sad that all these situations are going around in the world and no one knows about them. Not the local channels! You might get lucky with CNN or BCC but that's about it. It's amazing! I am looking forward to following your voyage. Thank you for making me aware of the situation out there and I can pass it along to my kids, so they to can make a difference. Thanks to Ms. Jolie for being an influential voice. Best of luck!

Gillian, you continue to inspire me and the team here at New Profit. Thanks for the briefings. I so hope you can make things happen. We'll reconnect when you are back.



As I observed the Holocaust Remembrance Day I thought of all the places in the world where so much suffering and genocide is still taking place. As a volunteer for several organizations including UNICEF and Amnesty International for over thirty years, I am so encouraged that your generation is taking up the cause. I wish you and Ms. Jolie well, and am with you in spirit. To dear little Tess, I would love to see your new lunch bag! You should be very proud of your mommy and I am sure she misses you more than you could ever know.


Dear Gillian I love the way you fight for you ,for the life, human rights and for us the species more difficult on earth

We love you and respect you from mexico of all heart



Hi Gill,
Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with and making us more aware of the world around us. I to am disapointed in the poor media coverage concerning Sierra Leone. I for one wouldn't know anything about it if it wasn't for the tireless work that people like you, Grant and Angelina do.

Thank you to you all,

Adelaide, Australia

Congratulations on this amazing, wonderful success. The multimedia way you help people follow the story is also wonderful and so humanizing-- the future! congratulations to you and thanks to you, Angelina, the rest of your team and Tess for all they do to support it! Talk to you in a bit.

I could see you, gillian, are at Davos for the World Economic Forum...is there a special issue at WEF Agenda that Witness/you are hoping to see "done"?
