My family and friends are all safe. But what a tragedy to have occured in my homeland of Kenya. It has been quite a week and I worry sometimes that we, or at least, I, am becoming desensitized to the violence we experience in the world.
On Monday, a gunman went into the Navy Yard facility in Washington D.C., where I currently live, and started shooting.
On Saturday, the somali-based terrorist group Al-Shabab went into West Gate Mall in Nairobi. As of the time I published this post, 68 people have been killed with hundreds injured. I am often at West Gate when in Kenya.
This is a reminder to me that there is no place in this world that is really safe in the world. Safety is a mindset. It is found in places like family, traditions and love. Live life fully everyday my friends. Because you never know how life will go tomorrow.
I am most proud by the solidarity of my countrymen, with thousands lining up to donate blood and help in anyway possible
