The Week Isn't Over Yet
I just received some pretty awful news. A friend's mom and grandmother were shot in a carjacking attempt just outside Nairobi. The Whites were stationed in the Congo when my parents were and their oldest son, Elijiah, and my younger brother and I would pal around. Being a diplomat is not all wine and cheese, relaxing by the pool, sitting in an air-conditioned office discussing the latest situation with some official, sometimes it involves assholes with assault rifles.
