"I believe you can only be as  bright and beautiful as the darkness you have tasted"

— Adrian

Through The Color of Poverty, Linda Ruth Paskell seeks to capture the unique dignity of the least fortunate members of society through the loving lens of her camera without masking their pain. These photographs are in honor of all the warriors living in poverty and the third world artists who selflessly and joyfully use their creative gifts as a means of providing a sustainable income for their families. They have become her greatest source of inspiration.

I Saw What I Saw

Music & Lyrics by: Sara Groves

I saw what I saw and I can't forget it
I heard what I heard and I can't go back
I know what I know and I can't deny it

Something on the road
Cut me to the soul

Your pain has changed me
Your dream inspires
Your face a memory
Your hope a fire
Your courage asks me what I'm afraid of
And what I know of love

We've done what we've done and we can't erase it
We are what we are and it's more than enough
We have what we have but it's no substitution

Your pain has changed me
Your dream inspires
Your face a memory
Your hope a fire
Your courage asks me what I'm made of
And what I know of love

Something on the road
Cut me to the soul

I say what I say with no hesitation
I have what I have and I'm giving it up
I do what I do with deep conviction

Something on the road, cut me to the soul

Your pain has changed me
Ooohhh...
Your dreams inspire
Ooohhh...
Your face a memory
Ooohhh...
Your hope a fire
Ooohhh...
Your pain has changed me
Your dream inspires
Your face a memory
Your hope a fire
Your courage asks me what I am afraid of
Your courage asks me what I am made of
Your courage asks me what I am afraid of
And what I know of God,
And what I know of God.
