Guardians

I wrote this poem yesterday.  Yet again, I found an apt photograph a fellow team member took in South Sudan.  Russell Turner and his son took wheelchairs with us on the first trip.  The fellow in the chair is an elderly chief, in his 90’s, which is rather old in South Sudan.  I love the people, they are so tall and proud.  I really do love these folks, and their culture.
