"There are no words between mother and daughter when they are reunited - only silent tears. Rosalind takes her daughter's hand, walks out of the gate and back into a Kenya that has become a fearful place.

They have no home, no money and only a promise of future peace from their feuding politicians"

Pretty much says it all

Someday I pray humans can get it right and learn to love and care for one another. Sad story.

Cry for the children. No child should be subjected to this horrible violence.
