Hi,

I hope you are well and keeping sane. Do everything to #StayAlive.

Last week we saw #FlowersOfHope campaign get to the United Kingdom and Kenyans were mad. As if that wasn’t enough, President Uhuru Kenyatta called us out for posting nonsense on our social media pages. He was equally mad. So now we have a country with an angry President and angry citizens. In our anger, could we have lost more than we stood to gain? I guess so. Here, I share my perspective on this matter-

Hi Patience,

How are you doing? It sounds like you're fed up?! It doesn't make any sense to waste our precious energy on being angry, for sure, especially during these already-anxious times. FYI, I couldn't get your link to work.

I hope you're well and that you have a good, safe week!

I'm doing well, thanks. Great to hear.

No worries, even if you were. It's okay to feel whatever you want to feel.

Hope you have a good week.
