Intermission – The Congo

by Susi, 28 July 2008

Emily\'s teammates in the Congo medical team.

We interrupt this show to share with you the story of a remarkable woman, my sister, Emily Johnston. She just arrived back in America after a stint in the Congo, passing through Rwanda, working as a doctor (that’s her team above). The faces say it all.

Emily flies wherever she can be of benefit.

Here on my little blog, we are involved with design, art, antiquities, architecture and all of those beautiful things. Honourable, yes. Meanwhile, others are on the frontline, at the raw edge of the human condition. Like Emily.

Emily on a difficult day in the wilderness.

Emergency doctor, whitewater rafting pioneer, mountaineering guide (McKinley and more), adventure racer (EcoChallenge), dog lover, avalanche rescue expert, ski patrolller, saver of lives. Here is a woman who lives what she believes, day to day. Here is a woman who gives a damn. Take a moment to salute Emily, one of millions of Boddhisatvas who are right now . . . “Appearing Live, on Earth! For a Limited Time Only!”

Book your tickets now. There’s not a moment to waste.
