Africans can been given much accolades for our physical prowess and accomplishments in the field of sports and athletics. Africans on the continent and those who were transported across the Atlantic in the humiliating conditions of chattel slavery continued during and after enslavement to keep their physical prowess atop all other rivals even where we were still the objects of exploitation as prize fighters, etc.
2008 saw a young African from the Caribbean – Jamaica, lead the field and break the world record in an area that he was not supposed to be expert in.
Young Usain taught us a lesson here. We cannot always be predicted by the forces that tag and label us.
Our young in our society are being constantly tagged as vagabond, hooligan, criminal and lazy. May our young men and women rise up and perform as USAIN BOLT did and surprise and upset the cart as society hopes for their worst performance.
Usain utilised discipline to achieve his goals. He did not depend on accolades and former triumphs.He honed his muscles.He stuck to the training and dietary regimes. He exercised will and determination to do his best.He excelled.
May the young in our society be inspired by the discipline of USAIN BOLT.
May our young men in particular be drawn to the organized spaces that are already here for their transformation into their Ancestral selves.
Find your place of transformation.
Be willing to work with Elders as Elders are willing to work with you.
Be who you ought to be -YOUR AFRICAN ROYAL SELF.
Usain accomplished his achievements even where the odds were against him.
He did not flinch. He did not complain.He focused all of his will and love for himself and Ancestors into dynamic energy that BROUGHT ALL OF US GLORY AND TRIUMPH.
You too can accomplish this. FIND YOURSELF.
GET REPUTABLE GUIDES TO BRING YOU ALONG THE PATH.
USAIN TOO NEEDED A COACH AND TRAINER.
THE GOOD IS ALREADY IN YOU. OGUN EXTRACTS THE GOLD FROM THE ORE.
MAY OUR YOUTH LIVE.
MAY THERE LIVES POSITIVELY TRANSFORM.
MAY THE SELF HATE CEASE!
UP YOU MIGHTY RACE YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU WILL!
