Yesterday was a tough one. For starters I woke up at 3:45 in the morning with a really bad stomach ache. So I didn’t eat that much all day. And it was one of the hottest days we have had here. It was also a very very difficult.
We went to a former refugee camp and a site of a massacre by the LRA. I have never seen such desperate and poor people. The stories they told were heart breaking and very difficult to hear. There is really no way I can fully describe the situation.
We brought gifts for the people. I was able to hand out some of the gifts which was great, however it turned out to be a bad situation. The people were so desperate that they began to rush us and the table with the gifts. The people were grabbing for anything they could. We all got out without any harm but we were all pretty shaken.
No one really expected that but we probably should have. Those people had been through so much and continue to face great hardships. When people are desperate they will do anything they can to get what they need.
I would also like to shout out to our driver Fred. He is a great guy and a great driver.
Sorry I had no Dumb and Dumber reference in this blog, but I did have two in a previous post. So you will have to wait.

PS Can someone tell Coach Bailey that I have been doing my workouts?
