Africa Let Them Kill Each Other

"Can you accept people & cultures just the way they are?"
- Told to me by Kurt, a Peace Corp volunteer who had just finished his two years in Ecuador and came to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil December 23, 2000


I love Africa, and after coming here six times I know why, it is simple. I love children, and it is difficult to find an adult in Africa.

I hate Africa because finding an adult is close to impossible, the place is stupid, primitive, uncivilized and violent.

You know you are having a bad day, week or decade when you find yourself muttering the Serenity Prayer repeatedly like an insane person:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Bah, I hope they kill each other in Ivory Coast
I told this to Bah yesterday, maybe I was over-reacting, maybe I am genius. Nonetheless, I cared about my friend Bah from the Ivory Coast enough to return to Ghana with one major mission. My goal was to convince Bah to leave Ivory Coast a country at war, come stay with me in the safe and childish country of Ghana.

I accomplished my goal, I tried to change one persons life and did, it cost me about 1500 US Dollars to so I could be proud of myself, I wanted to look at the guy in the mirror with respect and not say I just looked the other way.

Does Bah Appreciate my Help?
There is no easy answers to love and appreciation, but generally she does say thank you. However, as I said, Africa is a big child, and she is 100 percent African, she believes that white people are around to help Africa, it is not a right for me to expect more than what she can be in life, she is and always will be from the African culture.

I want to give long-term readers a clue, I have written for months about Bah, and she has never read one Blog post I have written.

I will leave this morning, I will travel to the city of Koforidua, Ghana close the Accra Airport. Then on Sunday night, I will fly to Sosua, Dominican Republic, a more modern version of Africa.
