African child

Name: Atim Oliver Mercy's  Country, Uganda

Theme: African Child Melanin blended skin seem like chocolate, Brighter smile with white snow teeth, Face signals life and hope, African beauty breath in her swinging body. African child has a right, Free quality education is our cry, With morals and values that outline our roots, To build a steady future full of ambition and dreams. Stop early girl child marriage, Stop normalizing immorality against girl child, Stop preying on unripe fruits but let them mature, African girl need pads and not your pointing cassava. Boy child has been neglected, Who will lead the way and be the family head? What kind of society are we breeding? A park dominated by lionesses and no lion? Our culture is rich and diverse, Full of wisdom and knowledge, Preaching purity of all members, A path for a brighter tomorrow. The Soweto demonstration must bear fruits, Siphon in the western wind and build our continent, We are special, unique and amazingly crafted, Hon Samia Suluhu leads our way. Compulsory education for all with no gender discrimination, Child friendly environment for all children, That's the Africa we all dream to live in, Drinking in our own wells, rivers and streams.

Hi Oliver,

I agree with most of your points, but who is Soweto, Siphon and Hon Samia Suluhu? Thanks for sharing.

Hi Atim,
When I read this I don't see African children in just Africa. There are African children throughout the world, in pockets, neighborhoods, islands, cities, states, countries. Africa has many children outside of Africa that absolutely suffer the same plight. What kind of world are we breeding you ask? That's the point, no one asks or thinks about it. We just breed, and keep breeding and hope for the best. We must evolve educationally and economically. That would perplex the colonial mind and topple the foundations. The evolution of African minds continentally and intercontinentally as one. Can you imagine? It's hard to picture, but what a concept!
Hugs...JoMarie

So much work to do here. We all need to devote our time and talent to improving the lives of disenfranchised children everywhere.
