It seems to me closing off West Africa and limiting travel will hurt the economy of the continent as well as inhibit resources to actually help control the spread of Ebola. I don't want to be one of those people. It's not in my nature to cause suffering of those in need.
I'm not planning on leaving Nairobi because of the Westgate attack, though I think a lot of people will. I am still haunted by the photographs and the stories of death, and I now live in a city haunted by the horror. No one has been untouched.
