As Delivered

I depart this morning for Kenya and Tanzania to deliver, in person, a message from our nation. To America's Embassy personnel in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, I will bring a message of solidarity in their sorrow, admiration for their courage, and support for their continued efforts on behalf of our country. To the people of Kenya and Tanzania, I will bring a message of friendship, made deeper by our shared grief, and of support in doing all we can to ease their suffering and help them start anew.
