A Quick Note To The Eco-Conscious Citizens Group's Akyaaba Addai-Sebo
Opanin Akyaaba Addai-Sebo,
Yes, when compassion for others is absent from humans, and hatred takes over their minds, egregious brutalities, and abominations, such as past Jim Crow-era lynching, and the burning of Blacks alive, as spectacle, are some of the horrors that can be wrought by minds consumed by hatred.
Akyaaba Addai-Sebo, that indeed is why we must always remember that we are all members of the one human race, and children of the Lord God Almighty. In Africa, it is the selfsame hatred-of-others, which makes some Africans think that their tribes are superior. Pity.
Yet, the fact of the matter, is that no tribe in today's Africa, is inferior, or superior, to another - in this resurgent and increasingly prosperous continent of ours. We are all Africans first and foremost. We are all God Almighty's children - members of one big family, which is enriched by a shared-heritage of diverse-ethnicity that binds us all: through bloodlines and ties of consanguinity.
Finally, to paraphrase a sage whose name one forgets, when it comes to humanity, there are no others, there is only us. Let us thus be guided by that in our daily interactions with each other, in our homeland Ghana. Peace and blessings to you Opanin - and let us all endeavour to stay safe.
