Samoa

The extent of the damage across American Samoa and Samoa isn't yet known, but my heart is heavy with worry for the people and the island and the spirit that I was fortunate enough to experience this past summer.

My holiday was more of a homecoming... it was a trip to a place of stories and legends and history and all the little pieces that make up my family... I didn't feel like a stranger in a strange land, but rather, just someone who has been away too long.

Our plan is (was) to return this summer... I want to sit on Tisa's patio and watch Yanni dance... I want to visit with the Chief and his wife and eat ice cream... I want to drive cars with dicey transmissions and brakes... I want to watch my children run with their cousins on pristine beaches and snorkel in crystal clear waters...

Keep your good thoughts coming and I will keep you posted on any news...



update: our family is fine... there is, of course, structural damage, and profound property loss, however, nothing that cannot be replaced.
thank you for your warm thoughts and prayers and good wishes... please consider donating through My Care or The Red Cross
xx,
K.
