The African continent is plagued with all kinds of avoidable evils that make us seem like an accursed race. Nothing we do seems to have any lasting, sustainable impact in the direction that we ought to go. But can we change? Yes, We Can! Change that won’t be easy, but is possible. Change that won’t be quick but is inevitable. And change that’ll be the offshoot of a new mind-set. Thus, to all the doubts & skepticism that greet our efforts; the laughter & derision that punctuate our fits & starts; & to the false prophecies & predictions that project our present into our yet-to-be-charted future, I say “Yes, We Can.”—S.K. Pipim, The Transformed Mind, pp. 142-143.
