Wow.... powerful words from Sarah Kay! Thank you for sharing this with us. I'm going to "earmark" (an english term for folding an important page in a book) this to pass on.

Great folds, Eric. Thanks for joining this weeks challenge.

That's a lovely folded piece Eric, and Sandra Kay is one of our favourites, especially her "should I have a daughter" poem. Nicely done. x
