What does it mean to me? It means taking pride in who we are as Africans; celebrating our unique diversity and our warmth as a continent. It also means reinstating our values and also to understand our genealogy. We are to encourage tolerance across the different cultures and norms that form this great African family. This means we resuscitate “UBUNTU” and purge ourselves of any hate towards one another.
It is a time to show appreciation to our Creator for having created us in the manner He has done,
Without any malicious pride but to be proud of whom we are with humility. To know that we are all made in His image. Let me talk to our African women a bit. As an African woman please know your worth, know your values and love yourself. As women let us maintain our authenticity and never want to be people we are not. Let us discover our purpose and fulfill it. You are a woman full of love, might and amazing compassion. Let us embrace each other and let us pull each other up to greater pinnacles. Today as we celebrate Africa day; can we please pray for our fellow African brothers and sisters that are affected by the plight of poverty, strive and war.
