I was once told that what separates the successful from others is the ability to begin something and follow it through to its conclusion. And drawing inspiration from a Facebook friend of mine I have decided to begin blogging everyday for the next 60 days. This means that if this blog is posted today I will have until the 24th of September 2012 to blog .
I cannot guarantee the quality of the blog entries or even their length I guess this to me is just a proof of concept a test to see if I am the type of man that does have the ability to keep at something for an extended period of time. As for content I suppose it will contain just me really my thoughts ideas and any random number of things.
So lets hope someone finds it interesting and even if not a single person does it will still serve some purpose.
Now for the first blog post.
Africa is not a country, but what if it was ? would the 54 different nations and their multitudes of ethnicities and languages have a chance at survival. We see so much division and fighting on the continent maybe it is time for it to become one country to do away with all our differences and fight the good fight, the fight agains poverty the fight against disease and of course the fight against discrimination.
In my lifetime I have been proud to describe myself as African and when I first thought about this statement ‘Africa is not a country’ my anger really was in what I perceived as ignorance stemming from the various populations that I have come across. But maybe I have propagated this misunderstanding by describing myself as African, I am Zimbabwean maybe I should stop saying I am african ? But I am African and we are African and African can mean success and Africa can be united
So I am saying I am African and Africa is a country.
