My name is Miouo (aka Niccolea M Nance). My best friend Dovid Smith and I will be embarking on a worldwide sailing trip with a tentative departure date of July 1, 2015. We are soliciting participants to be a part of our goal of enriching world community. Since we are kind of rebooting the project at this time, I figured I would go over some useful information about what we are doing and why. This week’s focus is on why the world needs this endeavor.
What need is being addressed?
In today’s world there is so much violence and war that anything that could spread positivity is so greatly needed. Even the smallest way to bring people together will do so much towards healing the global society. This is what we hope to achieve.
We have started with ourselves. Dovid is a Jew of European American descent and I am a Christian of African American descent. We met when we were coworkers at a major Fortune 500 company and found that we had much more in common than what would keep us apart so we became the best of friends. We are starting with our own friendship as an example of what can be achieved when the boundaries of differences are over reached.
We are not simply tourists, but people truly interested in the history and people of the places we will visit. We are reaching out now to get to know people in the countries we will be stopping in. We are sharing our experiences with the world wide web in order to reach as many people as possible.
So we are hoping to be another positive thing that will bring people together. We will link all the people following our journey together in a form of unity that has the chance to build world wide community. The word “Emuna” means “Faith” in Hebrew. This journey is a step out on faith that there are enough people in the world who want to connect in peace to make this possibility a reality.
Thank you for reading!
