RIP Micronesians

Sad story here on the funeral for the three people killed in a Missouri Church recently.

The individuals killed were Micronesians. I spent a year working for the Jesuit Volunteers in Guam (in Micronesia). The victims were Pingelapese (Pingelap Atoll--far right of map). I never made it to that particular island (nor really worked with that sub-Micronesian group, the Ponepeians) but did spend time on other nearby atoll islands with related groups of people.

Sleep with the angels and the ancestors.
