[27-July, Windhoek] People have been asking us lately, “So how do you feel about leaving Namibia?” And I say, It’s okay. It was the plan all along. I’ll miss a lot of the people I met – both Namibians and Americans. I’ll miss the challenges, although I expect more to come. I wish my understanding of how to navigate toward my goal of helping people had come to me faster. Maybe I didn’t ask enough of the right questions. Maybe if I had insinuated myself into the lives of Namibian’s. But that’s now water over the dam – or under the bridge – spilled milk. I know I had some positive impact. And that’s enough for me. Besides there are some things I will be doing from Ohio to further my contribution to the good people in Namibia via the wonders of modern communication technology. So tonight, as we make sure our seat backs and tray tables are in their upright and locked positions, I will see the Land of the Brave slip away and feel a tinge of sadness blended with hope for the future of Namibia as a maturing country and for the Namibian people who contribute their best efforts to making things better every day.
