A Widow's Plight

Eight widows from Palestine decide to start a company after their husbands pass away.  A woman in the Middle East is expected to stay at home after she is widowed.  If a woman decides to remarry, then she gives up her children and they will be raised by some of her family members because the husband will more than likely not want to take her children in.  Oh what a sacrifice to make!  These women gave it their best shot to start a company making pickles. Each one contributed 100 dollars to get it started. They worked tirelessly to get their product out in the marketplace.  Sometimes we pray for rain and it doesn't come.  At least they tried their best.
