I went to Zimbabwe


I went to Zimbabwe...I know how white people feel in America now, relaxed! Cause when I heard the police car I knew they weren't coming after me. ~Richard Pryor

Hi Getzapped,
I loved Richard Pryor!
I've been to Zimbabwe.
But in spite of the dogmatic rule and accompanying poverty/sadness, there are beautiful encapsulations of life even there.
I'd love to go back actually. :-)

susan- thank you for sharing your experience and shedding a different light on the situation there. I beieve we can find beauty everywhere, if we are willing to look. I hope you make it back!
