not good news from cape town...

My heart sank two days ago when I got a call from Victor telling me that the xenophobic attacks had spread to Cape Town. From as far as I'm aware, it is mainly playing itself out with the burning of Somali and ZImbawean businesses in and around the townships. Thousands of people are being evacuated from the areas.

Vic has been working with his church to find accommodation for those being evacuated from their homes. I'm ridiculously proud of him for rolling up his sleeves and doing what needs to be done.

I'm sure he's fine. But I do admire your ability to allow loved ones to be in harm's way in order to love like you try to love. Transparency not hypocrisy--admirable.
