K'naan: A Love Letter

Courtesy G. A. Hussein, 2007. 

K'naan's New York Times op-ed is an open love letter for his homeland, for the thing that consumes it and most likely, for the best definition of his humanity as he so eloquently ties it to the life struggle in the Horn of Africa today. You will weep reading it and easily, weep even more if you ponder it's meaning first read. But the real challenge, I suppose, is how we bottle those tears into a bottle of something so tough to swallow, we don't stop at tears?

  1. True that. Been thinking about some way to do something to bring attention to what's going on in the horn. If you wanna collaborate, let's come up with something unique -- I'm so down.
