I AM OUT OF YEMEN SAFELY.
My scheduled flight tomorrow out of Yemen was cancelled and moved today, so I had to rush to the airport this morning to (unfortunately) leave the country. I am now in Cairo.
This past week in Yemen has been one of the most eye opening journeys of my life. It was a roller coaster of emotions and I learned a lot about myself and the detrimental situation happening inside of this vulnerable Arabian nation.
This video recaps my thoughts on Yemen as I try to wrap my head around what I just experienced. I also share my 2 cents on what I think needs to happen for Yemen to rebuild and come together moving forward.
I will end my Yemen series by telling you this — from the bottom of my heart, I had an amazing time in this country and I feel really bad for the people here. They showed me nothing but kindness and respect, and it is horrible to witness the struggles that they are living through. I will be keeping Yemen closely in my thoughts until things get better. If you feel touched, then I will ask you to SHARE this video because Yemen can use any positive attention it can get.
