Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"After the benediction, as I prepared to leave, I turned to the elderly woman, who had greeted me in broken English at the beginning of the service, and asked her the meaning of the prayer's final word "Osekou." The passion with which it was said made me wonder. She looked into my eyes, lifted her finger, and drew three letters in the air: S,.O,.S" ______________ "That night I couldn't sleep. Wrapped in my own sheet, I cried in the darkness and prayed for help - for the butterfly woman, the mother of three, the woman who wanted to brush her teeth, the residents of Cite Soleil, and all the children. Their situation was so overwhelming, I felt weighed down with a sense of hopelessness. Suddenly, in the silence of the night, my head filled with the singing of morning prayers at Son Fils. I heard the deep, rich voice of the butterfly woman. I pulled my sheet tightly around me and shuttered as I thought of her peeling skin and sores. But her singing, her voice. In it was a strength and power that called out from her dark cocoon and clung fiercely to life. I felt how deeply she had looked into my eyes, how she'd urgently whispered something. She hadn't given up hope, and as I thought about her wrapped in her butterfly sheet, whispering to me, I heard her urging me not to give up either."
