Activist Leymah Gbowee helped mobilize a large number of women to pray and protest for peace after years of Liberian civil war. In one notable action in 2003, she led a delegation of women to nearby Ghana, where women protesters attired in white t shirts sat arm in arm in front of a hotel meeting room where peace negotiations were underway.

Most of us have for several years bombarded ourselves with negative thoughts so changing your ideas and also the way you believe won’t happen overnight but if you stick with affirmations they’ll work once you’ve retrained your way of thinking.
None of us will ever really know why Palmer decided to marry Rice. Some think she might be suffering from battered wife syndrome or a form of Stockholm syndrome as a means of defending herself against what occurred.
