      This project fills me with hope. As a USer, I often feel bombarded with international news that I can't really take in because I don't know how to connect with the people whom that news is really about. Nicole Karsin has the credentials and a great angle to help us really understand what is happening in Colombia because of the drug wars. I look forward to learning more about her three warriors.

      Wonderful job, Nicol! This subject is so important and really, I, we, nobody is doing anything about it. We are all washing our hands and letting the governments deal with it and look what a disaster it is... Thank you for bringing awareness on the drug war and the plight of indigenous people and for elevating indigenous women to the hall of fame of peace makers.

      Creator RG on May 8, 2012

      Abrazos for using your skills to tell important stories. The voices of indigenous peoples of Colombia must be heard if they are to survive. So much more critical than the stories that grab headlines and focus the public's attention on escorts and government agents. I wish you had a dollar for every time that scandal in Cartagena has been re-told or updated...

      Thanks, Nicole, for the opportunity to join the fight with We Women Warriors!
