KOFI AWOONOR R.I.P.
You may have seen this already, but Ghanian poet Kofi Awoonor was among those murdered in the Kenyan shopping mall terrorist attack. His death isn't more important than any of the other victims, but it does resonate globally in the poetry and literary community in a way that seems to make it even more personal for some, especially his readers. May he rest in poetry.
