That's a cool idea. I think there is FAR more to this Congo story than Eric let on. I think it's just the beginning and we're going to meet shy Neema eventually. He made a point of saying that she's still alive. I have a theory on that one. But a question first. I was googling the Congo Civil war. There have been many. But the most recent confiict seems to have been from 1997 - 2003. Eric originally left town summer 2000, right? So I could see him going to the Congo as a photo journalist some time between 2000 - 2003. He would still be in his early 20s. 23 - 25?
I imagine after all the traumatizing Congo stuff, he went back to Colorado and eventually started his path to becoming a priest. I googled that and it can take anywhere from 4 - 8 years. 4 if he already had a bachelor's degree. That sounds about right, huh?
It's clear that Eric is still haunted by the events in the Congo. And that part of the reason he became a priest was to atone for his "sins". We haven't heard the last of it by a long shot.
