“Mom, Dad, Ayya,
*Ayya is brother in Sinhalese
I have heard about the incident in France. I am so saddened to hear about the loss of so many innocent lives yet again.
Even so, I am still in Greece, alive and well. There is no reason for you to worry for my safety.
I miss you everyday.
There is reason. But there is also reason for me to worry for them.
The longer I spend here in Greece, the more I begin to believe in the perspective the locals have bestowed into me here: everyday is precious, and a new day is no longer gauranteed.
Let those around you know you care for them at every moment you can. And always exercise safety and caution. But more simply, just live.
