THINK OF ONE HUMANITY AND HOME AFRICA

Erena Bayessa
Posted June 7, 2020 from Ethiopia

Studies of “Fossil and bone records” indicate that earliest humans go back more than 4 million years. The early upright ancestor of the entire humans’ called ‘Home Erectus departed Africa on the long journey that eventually peopled the Earth” The vast cultural heritages are evident that Africa is continent of beginnings, as it is often called of course. Numerous culture heritages, artifacts include monuments, obelisks; cave paintings and petro glyphs across Sahara to South Africa and Ghana to Ethiopia portray clues to the beliefs and way of life of these age-old hominids. It now seems likely that every person today comes from a lineage that goes back to an ancient African. Scholars strongly agree that “Africa is the cradle of all humanity, as DNA of the entire humanity all over our world trace back to the continent- Africa. Home sapiens first appeared in Africa. Scientist found the earliest fossils of human ancestors at OMO kibish of Ethiopia. The scholarly studies of Genetic data indicate that there were two human migrations out of this continent. The first group went no further than what is now Israel, following a coastal route along southern Asia, they reached what is now Australia; they were a people known today as Aborigines” they also traveled through Southeast Asia and China, eventually reaching Japan and Siberia. Genetic clues lead researchers to believe that humans in northern Asia eventually reallocated to the Americans and the new arrivals trekked southward down the west coast. Humankind -both Female and Male, may categorize one another, discriminate one another and/or abuse one another based on their respective unique background and differences include but not limited to color, sex, race, settings, life standards, religion, worldview … and any other socio, economic, political attributes.. I believe this is totally wrong because as humankind our intrinsic values surpass our extrinsic values such as moral low within or conscience, sprit of compassion, care, love, respect … and empathy, for one another. Humankind was created uniquely composed of blood, flesh and sprit for purpose, and understanding and living our intrinsic values gives us our humanity definition than the extrinsic values/ attributes/ quality such as color, race, status… and gender etc. Thus our relationship between/among one another should be based on unconditionally respect of dignity, equality, compassion, love and care for one another. Humankind were never created to dominate each other based on any differences extrinsic attributes such as sex, color, race, perspective, status, among other but we are all connected not just by electronically, economically and socially but also biologically and spiritually. One example from scholarly studies for instances, says “ entire humankind/race has common starting point and DNA of the entire humanity all over our world trace back to the continent- Africa” . Therefore, I would like to call to action the entire humanity across the world to ignore differences based on color, sex, race, religion, perspectives, life standards, etc , instead collaborate, for solidarity to promote or empower each other not work to / against each other. Collaborate to ensure equality, security, dignity, rights and wellbeing of the entire humanity. We are all connected, associated; and none of us are complete or will be complete without the other humanity in other part of this world.

Hello, Erena,

I have heard that, too, that human race can be traced in Africa. Thank you for this informative post.

This resonates with me, "Thus our relationship between/among one another should be based on unconditionally respect of dignity, equality, compassion, love and care for one another. Humankind were never created to dominate each other based on any differences extrinsic attributes such as sex, color, race, perspective, status, among other but we are all connected not just by electronically, economically and socially but also biologically and spiritually. "Powerful!

Thank you for sharing. We stand with you!

Beautifully said Erena.
Yes we need to raise our consciousness to live beyond the physical attributes, race, class, creed, situation we're born into.

To truly live fully, humans need to realize our connectivity, not just as a global community, but as one humanity.

During the COVID-19 suffering we're going through a soulful song as emerged from our beloved Afrika.

"No one is safe, until everyone is safe."

Stand Together" - African Anthem of Solidarity against COVID-19

We are really ONE, and until humanity realizes this, we'll continue to compete, repress, dominate and ultimately suffer for generations into the future.

Our hope is within our children and young ones...as they begin to explore their higher consciousness and real selves...I witness this marvel quite often...

Let's inspire them to raise the consciousness for themselves and their peers...

Thank you...for sharing.
