My Heart Hurts

My heart hurts for the country. My heart hurts for its people. My heart hurts for its future. I am talking about Kenya. The country erupted last week when the results of their elections were announced. You can read what has happened in Kenya and the violence that followed the election here.

I am not going to recap or have any political opinions in this post.

All I do know is that I was scared. I was very scared for my girls at Saint Monica’s. I have been in daily contact with them since the violence erupted. Everyone is safe and school has been postponed for a week. I am just hoping that I will be able to go back in April. Being this far from them during this time is hard. I wish I could help. Our own Amy was scheduled to go to Nairobi next week, but her trip has been postponed. She will tell you her story soon.

Please take a few minutes today and the weeks that follow and read CNN and BBC to keep yourself updated on the news from Kenya.

    Rocky,
    I wondered about your girls when I heard about what was going on over there.
    Keeping them in my thoughts and prayers.

    I’m so sorry for your pain my friend. Please keep us updated on the girls and know that we are here if you need us. I’ll be thinking of the girls and praying for their safety, if only that could be enough to keep them out of harms way.
