August 11, 2008 - Kylie Saari
I was struck Saturday by the amount of laughing going on at Habitat for Humanity's Women Build event. While I was just there covering the story -- not actually building anything, I have worked on Habitat houses in the past. Usually there is a lot of grunting, an occasional instruction shouted, and a gleefully taken break for lunch. But this time was different. Maybe it was the shear joy these women felt at actually being asked to lift roof trusses on top of a house and affix them there by themselves, maybe it was the comradarie a group of women share whenever they are asked to share a task, or maybe it was something else. Whatever it was, I definately wanted to be part of it, and I was a little disappointed I was the one holding the pen and paper, and not the drill.
