Photograph of street scene in Nairoibi: People moving leftwards towards the light

Kenya has been shaken badly by the ongoing terrorist attack on Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall.  It’s been a few very dark days around here, filled with anxiety and grief.

However, faced with the horrors of terror from the outside, people have also demonstrated a remarkable sense of unity rising above the tangible ethnic and religious divides in the country.

Let’s hope this feeling of solidarity and unity lasts. It is much needed, also in times of peace and stability.

        Thanks for asking. To be honest, I’d rather be somewhere else these days.

        Thank you. I hesitate to ask because of the news lately. I hope you are safe.

        I am, thank you. However, it’s been a sad few days and people are afraid of more to come.

        Thanks, that’s very kind of you! Kenya is not my country but you are right, there is plenty of reason for concern. Have a good week!
