You may or may not have heard that Kenya’s military has started fighting militants in Somalia this past week or so. You might or might not have heard that yesterday there were two explosions in Nairobi. The Kenyan government is making the connection between the two, and has begun a crackdown on Somalis here in Kenya.
In fact ten or so were arrested yesterday here in Nakuru.
First of all, don’t worry about us. The two explosions in Nairobi were hand grenades, and the attacks seem, at least to me, to have been poorly carried out. Besides what will worrying about terrorist attacks accomplish? If they want to through a hand grenade at me there’s not much I can do about it. (Though I have played Call of Duty so I might just be able to lob it right back at them. I do have some skills.)
Secondly our lives will go on just like they have been going. No changes because of conflict. I didn’t even know about these two hand grenades till this morning. We don’t watch the news at night and have begun switching our computers and phones off after dinner.
Alright, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
