We've Arrived!
The people and places bare resemblance to my first experience in Kenya. But I know that there is still so much to learn.

32 hours later and we have arrived!

The smell of the earth and the dust rising and bellowing into the airport was a familiar welcome. The ill ease that I had felt all along this process of getting here has slipped away. It almost feels like I have come back home after a long vacation. The people and places bare resemblance to my first experience in Kenya. But I know that there is still so much to learn. The distinctions will soon become evident. New faces, new characters in this story will come forward, and a new understanding will be made.

This is not me. This is not my story. The story started long ago – long before the ashes fell and the dust settled. Long before a rigged presidential election, and long before Kenya was Kenya. This is a human story. One from which we can all learn; one which will examine the value of life, the power of love, and the strength of hope.
Still sweating the stress off my back of the past year, I still have to question: am I ready?

The clarity will come.

 

Love you (because I love to),

Tyler
