Election Day


3:30 EST and Chris is anxiously checking the internet on his cell phone, eager for any news of the election back home, as he sits by a campfire in the Masai Mara. Even though we're far away, our votes are in, thanks to DHL and mom back home, and we're so excited to contribute to this process. In a country that was torn apart in January by post-election violence that fell along tribal lines, I feel so proud watching Americans head to the polls in record numbers to declare their hopes in peaceful, democratic means. I hope the spirit of this historic election stays with us long after the polls close.
