I learned late last night that my friend Ginger‘s brother Wyatt, who used to work and hang out with me before he decided to go into the Peace Corps, died after an accident in Zambia. It was relatively innocent, just horsing around in a hotel when he slipped and fell out a window.
I’ve been having to tell everyone I know who used to work with him. We’ll probably do a memorial site and hold some type of gathering for his friends here in DC. I had to do this two and a half years ago with a coworker I didn’t even know as well as Wyatt, and I’m getting really tired of having to do these things–could everybody just stop dying for a bit?
Update 11-19-05: Here’s the official Peace Corps press release on Wyatt’s death. And later today our memorial site will go up, thanks to the efforts of Nyk and Jo.
