It is clear that the way to heal society of its violence... and lack of love is to replace the pyramid of domination with the circle of equality and respect. ~Manitonqua

Today, the members of the community of ACPA, grieve with our colleagues and their families at Garissa University College in Kenya. At last report, more than one-third of the students were killed or injured as a result of a day-long college campus siege by hostile intruders. This is the country's deadliest attack since the 1998 US embassy bombings. 147 students have died and 79 are wounded.
Garissa University College was established in 2011 as a constituent college of Moi University, in the facilities of the former Garissa Teachers Training College. It is the first and only public post-secondary school to offer approved university degree courses in the North Eastern Province. The school principal is Prof. Ahmed Warfa, the Deputy Principal (Finance) is Prof. Kirimi Kiriamiti, and the Deputy Principal (Academics) is Prof. Genevieve Mwayuli. The university college has 75 staff members.
May your sorrow pierce hearts of stone that new life may begin.
Mei huzuni --dunga yako mioyo ya jiwe kwamba maisha mapya unaweza kuanza
