  • I have been working in South Sudan for the last couple months and I have been following events on RACE unfolding in America.

    In the face of oppression, here are my thoughts:

    In the oppressed life, victory doesn't lay in the removal of the chains but in the persistence,tenacity,determination and willingness to find one humanity in the endless field of debris of anger,self-doubt,destructive energy,brokenness,desire for revenge,...left by your former masters.Once found, you quickly realize that violence is not the path to take (considering that it is what expected from you) but to embrace understanding and teaching the young generations for the future sake. For my sons and daughters I lay down my weapon and that would be my legacy.
