I have some cool brothers.
My youngest brother, Pete, just got an email from Ira Glass. Pete's got his own podcast AND he's married to an Astronaut!! (well, kind of)
But I think my middle brother, Jonathan, has now moved into first place on the Moore Family Coolness chart: My brother and his wife and small child are being thrown out of a country in Africa.
How cool is that?!
Really, how many people do you know who can say that a COUNTRY forced them to leave? I mean, maybe you've been booted out of an apartment or fired from a job, or maybe even the state you live in took some of your land for a freeway.....but to get booted out of a country?! They've got just over 2 weeks to sell all of their belongings, get exit visas, make travel arrangements, figure out where they're going to go, how they're going to make a living, say goodbye to all of their friends and colleagues, and make arrangements for their work in Africa to continue.
Okay, I know the situation is more serious than that, but I'm just sayin'.......
And pray for Jon and Amanda and little Atticus. They'll be home (wherever that is - I'm hoping for Rochester!!) right around Christmas day.
