“What makes us human is more powerful than what makes us different.” Anonymous Her smile and the touch of her hand on my wife’s face allowed Marilyn to enter her world for just a moment. Nosieui Sureni, the elder woman of this Maasai village in Kenya, was thanking her for the gift of a cow – a gift that would help to sustain the women and children of her village. Marilyn was filled with joy yet hesitated to embrace her new friend as she wondered if this was acceptable to do. In a spontaneous moment that I was able to capture, Nosieui embraced Marilyn with much delight!
