My older brother and sister and I were missionary kids in Liberia, W. Africa. Perhaps you heard of the civil war followed by 2 civil uprisings and culminating in the Ebola pandemic. Military brats are not the only ones who experience the loss of “home”. But the loss of the physical is not the real loss – rather it is the loss of community. However for me it is the loss of the physical community as well as not knowing what happened to my indigenous friends. In my community, some of us maintained contact via the internet over the years (i.e. when the internet was developed). It is not the same but it certainly is better than nothing.
