Africa, you may have failed in many areas. You may have fallen several times & may carry the old scars & the new bruises. But keep getting up. Don’t allow your destiny to be determined by either the roadblocks in your path or the deliberate efforts of others to keep you down. Setbacks in our history shouldn’t set us back. They are stepping-stones for us to move upward & forward. Africa, I say to you: Today is the last day of yesterday & the first day of tomorrow. It’s the conclusion to yesterday’s chapter & the introduction to your new book. Why dwell on a written past, when you can write the future today? .—S.K. Pipim, The Transformed Mind, p. 241.
