Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better start running.
Starting with the new Millennium, Africa has been advancing towards its destiny geared by a positive spirit more than before.
All its sons and daughters and in all places across the world are gradually waking up to work and change the negative outlook the West has assigned to Africa from immemorial times.
Africans are counting on their new found determination to make a significant transformation in their lives primarily building on the strength within, becoming self-reliant, finding solutions in themselves before seeking help from outside.
Through this new journey started with the 21st century, there are challenges they have to face and overcome in order to progress. This blog and the Rising Continent (the blog), to mention just a few, are about some of those preventing harmonious pace in moving forward.
