Gorgeous, breathtaking illustrations accompany this true story of compassion and healing from one people to another. Kimeli traveling back to his homeland of Kenya, tells his people of the tragedy that happened in his adopted home, New York on September 11. While in the United States studying to be a doctor, Kimeli saw the devastation and destruction that terrorists brought to the American people. His people, being compassionate and caring, gave their 14 of their beloved cows to the American Dipolmat in Nairobi as a sign of friendship, empathy, and blessing.
