Yes, I am a day late. So, instead, I will do a week long tribute to the children of Moldova. Children who will grow up knowing that yesterday (July 29) their country had a second election after the youth took to the streets in April to demand a free and fair election. Yesterday’s election was not perfect. But, it was a moment when the youth of a county felt listened to. They felt they got to speak. In a place of such dire poverty and little hope, I can only hope that these children (who I haven’t seen since 2004) are forging a way for themselves.
