The Impact

I have new neighbors with small children. I haven’t been around much so haven’t gotten to know them. I have been traveling a lot for work and a few weeks ago when I was back talking to Annet she told me about a conversation she had heard between Grace and Mercy, my new 4 year old neighbor.

Mercy: “Grace, where did your mzungu go?”
Grace: “What?”
Mercy: “Where did you send your mzungu?
Grace: “What?”
Mercy: “Why did you send your mzungu away?”
Grace: “She’s not my mzungu. She’s my Amanda.”
Mercy: “Where did you send your Amanda?”
