Good morning and Happy Independence may we truly be Independent and emancipated from the Slavery of the mind. What is more important than this? If the mind is free. The physical will fall in place.
A mighty horse can easily be tied to “nothing” and yet remain immobile.
One of my greatest fears, confronted me in flesh and blood yesterday. A friend and university graduate actually insinuated a race is superior to the African and that’s me putting his assertions lightly.
Who has bewitched you? Who has bewitched this country?
I have come to conclude a lot of us even this my generation as educated as we seem are in a pitiable state of mind. Our minds have been beaten and battered into the shape society dictates, family dictates or just even friends.
If Nigeria will be great her youth must begin to stand like men and not bow to the mould handed to them. Reverence should be given whoever deserves such but do not be ashamed to take a stand where you should.
Do not follow in the steps of the past generation. If given the opportunity 80% of the young people I have met and interacted with say or imply they would probably be worse in that they would just loot the Treasury “smarter”. This only gives a bleak future. Unfortunately the future is now as I can already see some close to those positions and ready to implement their selfish ambitions.
Define your truths and define what’s falsehood for you, define your good and define your bad correlate this with what may be progressive you, family, friends and the country, choose to do the truth and the good. These areas of life (truth and good) are slippery, hold on to them like your life depends on it cause it actually does.
This cannot be over emphasized “Never be a Flag!!” You were born alone except you are a Siamese twin, even regular twins are alone, and except science out wits death soon you will die alone.. Know when to wield the spirit of comradeship and when to abandon ship.. Do not be pushed to follow leaders you do not understand their good and truths.
Be patriotic, loyal to family, stand with friends, protect your community.
A great Nigeria starts with you!
