i’ll let her speak ahead of the story:
“Ms. Power described April 18 as the “worst day of my professional life.”
“What can you say?” she said on ABC’s “Nightline” after the accident. “You come here to help.”
“Later, the State Department would provide compensation to Toussaint’s family — about $1,700 in cash; two cows; sacks of flour, rice, salt, sugar and onions; and cartons of soap and oil. The American government also had a well built near the front of the family’s house. The money provided for a new roof, according to Mr. Dague, Toussaint’s father.”
Oh, Toussaint Birwe, rest in peace, and may your family find some measure of comfort …eventually.
