The Universe sure does have its way of inspiring you, of giving you a nudge like hey girl look at that.. Your efforts are definitely not in vain
As I sit typing away here, a copy of The Citizen Newspaper on my lap, front page #BLACKHAIRMATTERS. I don’t think I need anymore motivation to keep going at my blog. There is so much education and enlightening that needs to happen when it comes to Afros and African hair.
I already gave my take on the #StopRacismatPretoriaGirlsHigh matter on my fb page AND I still need to tell all the beautiful courageous girls at Pretoria High:
YOU ARE MAGIC!
YOU ARE BEAUTY!
YOU ARE GRACE!
YOU ARE STRENGTH!
YOU ARE POWER!
Africa’s heart swells with everlasting PRIDE for your choosing to take a stand in the face of adversity. For choosing to raise your voice, and not even lower it one bit even when threatened with arrest for own rights!! Your right as a human to exist peacefully and wonderfully in the way that you are created.
Africa also hangs her head in shame, that you had to go through all these horrific experiences, exposed to the cruelty and injustices of the world without protection at such a tender age, but listen when I say;
” THE FLOWER THAT BLOOMS IN ADVERSITY IS THE MOST RARE AND BEAUTIFUL OF ALL “
Let this be your mantra young queens, continue to own your crown with PRIDE. Never let anyone dictate to you WHO YOU ARE, CAN OR CAN’T BE.
You made History on the 29th OF AUGUST 2016. And showed the world that everything you need to face this thing called LIFE is inside you.
YOU ARE NOW, YOU ARE THE FUTURE, YOU ARE THE UNIVERSE
Never forget it!
