I hope you are having a great week!
Tomorrow is a great Holiday here in Kenya( Hero's Day),and as Kenyan celebrate our great men and women who have helped shape the world,I saw it wise to share this note.
They say that....He who is narrow of Vision can not be big of heart.............
And in that regard a new Vision for the world must be in the making.
But who will be the new vision- makers?
Allow me to answer that question with a story.
A little girl called Liz was suffering from a rare disease.Her only chance to survival was through a blood transfusion from her 5 year old brother who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies necessary to combat it.
The Doctors explained the situation to her little brother who after a little hesitation accepted to donate the blood to his sister.
As the blood Transfusion progressed he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled seeing life return to her cheeks.
Then from nowhere,he looked up to the doctor and asked with a trembling voice," when do I get to die?''Being young.the little boy had misunderstood the doctor,he thought he was going to give his sister all his blood and die in order to save her.
The Moral is that love like you have never been hurt,serve like you will not serve again,and dance like you do when no one is watching!
In other words,the vision Makers are a group of people who will do it sacrificially and for no audience.
Similarly they will expect nothing in return,and this is the type of people that Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were.
They Sacrificed their personal comfort for the good of the commonwealth.
Although such people are rare,I believe we have Vision Makers of sorts in this group.
If this is true this people will not choose the time,time will choose them and thrush them in their new role.I look forward to seeing all of our groups members being chosen in this noble task.A task to champion for peace,Interdependence and unity across.
I sincerely want to thank our new members for joining with us and indeed together lets stitch this world together with love and Peace.
