My name is Betsy, and I live in a war zone with my husband and our two kids. We love the life that we live and are here because we want to make a difference. This blog is about chronicling our journey and helping folks understand this very strange and misunderstood part of the world. In a place that is riddled with so much violence, fear, and hatred, it’s sometimes hard to see the good. I want to do a better job of that, and keeping this blog going also helps me to put things into perspective.
