So I had no idea that when my dad went to Guinea some three years ago, that it was neighbors with Sierra Leone.
I spoke to him earlier today and he said he knew several people who were in ‘that mess’ — the ‘mess’ being Sierra Leone and the conflict diamonds.
I was younger then, when he went to Guinea, and I didn’t really understand much about the area. But now I have so much more respect for him and his trip. <3
Also, here’s a picture of said dad while he was in Guinea: He’s the one on the far left. Kick ass.
I dunno, now I just want to go to Africa or Guinea or Sierra Leone and DO something there. But we’ve got too many problems here in America to go help other countries right now.
