"How does something like this happen, they always wonder. 'How does a guy like you end up in Addis Ababa sleeping in the back room of a school house?' I tell them about Leeza. I want to say something about grief. My theory is that only radical action is the correct response to loss. But action is dangerous. I have no right to say anything like that. I just tell my story with a shrug. This is what I did. Kind of foolish, but at least it was decisive."
Careful So is a story of love and loss. It is Dana's story, spanning a decade and three continents as he struggles to fulfill Leeza's dream.
On a summer evening in 2003, an auto accident took the life of his Ethiopia-born fiancée. For Leeza, Dana traveled to Ethiopia to open schools for underprivileged children. He gives a vivid account of the country and its customs. He is the 'faranj' in a strange land, but in the end he finds success, healing, and a new beginning.
