E-mails From Africa

Commentator Bill Miles was once a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa. Now a professor at Northeastern University in Boston, he receives e-mails from an African village. Despite the townspeople's poverty and daily tribulations, they wrote to express concern about his son, Sam. The Africans have heard about school shootings in the U.S. and wonder if Sam is safe.
