14 Cows for America

14 Cows for America

by Carmen Agra Deedy, in collaboration with Wilson Kimeli Naiyomah

A mere nine months have passed since the September 11 attacks, and hearts are raw as a very unusual ceremony begins in a far-flung village in western Kenya where hundreds of legendary Maasai warriors offer their gift to a grieving people half a world away. Word of the gift will travel newswires around the globe, and for the heartsick American nation, the gift of fourteen cows emerges from the choking dust and darkness as a soft light of hope—and friendship.
