Dancing in the Streets
They are dancing in the streets! The mood is jubilant! A peace accord has been signed, and things are returning to normal.
Except for some. Like the lady I saw in Kisumu this week. She was gently unfolding used clothes she would sell…her only means of income. Her husband is from another tribe and had to flee. She can’t join him, and he is afraid to return here.
Or the shiny, new cars parked in a hotel parking lot. They were brought there for protection before the owners fled to a safer place. They still haven’t returned.
Or the Bible-study extension class I teach in Kapsabet. Some of the class left in a hurry, and haven’t returned.
On the positive side, I like the attitude of a friend of mine who is a security guard. His partner ran for his life in December, and my friend has been on duty 24/7 ever since. He is glad for peace.
So are we. God bless.
