"I started working in the fields when I was five. After that, I worked construction for thirty years. Eight years ago, I was between jobs and I wanted to do something useful, so I started going to school. It took me 8 years to get through middle school, because I could only go to classes when work was slow, but I finished with a 9.3 out of 10. Now I’m moving on to high school. The toughest part is Algebra."

Happy Meskel!

Ethiopians today celebrate Meskel or “The Finding of the True Cross”.

The story goes that in the Queen Helena of the 4th century had a dream about where the actual cross that Jesus was crucified on was buried. In the dream, she was told to make a bonfire, and the smoke would lead her to the cross.

To celebrate Meskel, last night Ethiopians made bonfires. Today they smudge the ash on their foreheads to celebrate.

"For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you."
