Time has passed, we have mourned and buried our loved one’s from the devastation that was the #westgateattack.
Most around the world watched in despair as the siege went on for four straight days, citizens and diaspora of Kenya sat at the edge of there seats as they watched terror attack their own.
It is yet amazing how this brought the country together through a massive outpour of support through social media as well as contributions for the victims, Kenyans raised over 30million Kenya shillings in 2 days! How amazing is that?! I logged on to my twitter handle constantly to get details on the siege but was moved by the unity of #KOT (Kenyans on Twitter). They virtually held each other’s hands throughout the whole ordeal and kept hope alive chanting slogans like #weareone and indeed the country stood as one, setting aside tribal and color differences.
As the world watched through various media outlets, they felt our pain and sent messages of support because there own were involved in the attacks and not just Kenyans.
Hopefully the country remains as ONE and the citizens continue to bless each other with positivity as they did through the ordeal, it really showed us what we are capable of as a country in whole.
Oh God of all creation,
Bless this Our land and nation,
Justice be our shield and defender,
May dwell in unity, peace and liberty
Plenty be found within our borders
Below are pics of Diaspora and American friends that wanted to show their support from miles away, we all hurt as one, we are all mankind.
If my brothers in trouble… So am I.
As you can see from the pics about, it doesn’t matter where your from, all you need is a Heart
