We want to encourage this generation and the next.
The way forward, I believe is to learn from the past. Learn from the mistakes yes, but we should also take evidence of good things and use them. Use them as guideposts, so that we don’t waste time reinventing the wheel, as they say.
I asked a family friend, Adwoa Sey for her input. An input that can benefit everyone.
She wrote back and said: “I think we should read more and write more. We get busy with family and may be tired at the end of the day, but we should definitely read more. I also think we should write more, whether on blogs or on fledgling books!”
“We should write about our experiences, what has helped us get through our life and our work experiences. We shouldn’t leave everything to the journalists!”
“We need to let each other know how we survived.”
I agree. Speak it, write it.
