But all is not lost.
It was one of those special moments on Thursday that I can truly credit myself on making the world a nicer place, one loner at a time. Two colleagues and I opened the long awaited 'Rafiki' (swahili for friend) room, a safehouse for those souls at school who haven't quite found their way yet. Boy would I have appreciated such a place when I was at school. The students can play games, do some art and crafts, and generally just be away from the nasty stuff that they are sadly now accustomed to.
Warms the cockles of ones heart it does.

Sonia, Deb and I. These women are the kindest, most giving ladies I have ever met.
