The last 4 days of my life in Central African Republic have been spent with David, who is a Christian, and Fore, who is a Muslim. I am Jewish.
These guys are some of the best local hosts and friends I’ve made around the world. Despite having 3 separate religions, it never held us back from getting along. In fact, just the opposite happened — we became curious about one another’s beliefs and we had many great conversations. Especially right now, in the midst of the holiday season!
There is a bigger message here that I hope you can all realize. All 7 billion human beings on this planet should not be divided by our beliefs. When it comes down to it, we are all the exact same.
Thank you David and Fore for showing me an incredible time in your country, which my country’s government currently issues the following travel advisory: Do not travel to Central African Republic (CAR) due to crime, civil unrest, and kidnapping.
