It was powerful to hear each statement. Affirming and inspiring! We also swapped books, took plenty of photos (see them on Flickr), and recorded several videos. See one video below. I will post the others later this week. The night ended with blowing out the candle, well wishes, and hugs filled with sisterhood love!
