Exciting opportunity. But I still require lots of practice!!
No easy jaunt, not at all!

Today’s word: PROTECTEE!
Sounds like our so-called free Africa running back to yesterday’s racist settler colonialists for advice on what needs to be done to “liberate” Africa again! What went wrong? Where, how and why do our liberation struggles fail so dismally in their delivery? Are MY people beyond redemption?
I must revisit my point! We need new thought leaders. Urgently. Without that, black Africa is a crying shame.
“Write it on your heart / that every day is the best in the year. He who is rich owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it / You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day; with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
The new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations / to waste a moment on the yesterdays.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I began today with a quick scan of issues affecting children and the youth. While the examples which follow are in no way exhaustive, I am happy to see that the effort to promote the sustainable development of children is in full throttle. Kudos to allafrica.com for compiling the stories. We are not there yet; but the promise that various countries are keenly aware of the challenges of children’s development is heartwarming.
