I think the look was one of examining me to see if I was holding a small animal. I don't think he was considering me as a substitute, but I wasn't about to test him. We toured ...
... at home. Feeling inspired, Mark and I braved the embassy the next morning to get more pages in my passport. It was enormous! Armed guards, triple security, guards to chaperone you from place to place...they didn't even permit anyone to walk on the front sidewalk - you were required to pass to the other side of the street. A few days later we joined in an embassy softball game in a field next to where the president plays soccer. I'm not sure how there were 20 ...
... children if they're not good, a white person will come get them. So when he saw me, he thought I was going to hurt him. So I knelt down onto the ground and held my hand out to the crying boy. He very reluctantly put his hand in mine and I just held it there for a few seconds while I spoke softly to him. I then asked if I could have a hug, Jean Marie interpreted for me and the boy walked slowly into my arms. I held onto him for a good while as he cried on my shoulder until ...
