Thank you Loyce

Indeed Wangari Maathai was a wonderful woman. One of Africa's greatest women leaders and models.
We shall live to remember you Wangari Maathai. Your courage, determination and contributions to environmental conservation and sustainable development will gain more roots worldwide.

Wangari Maathai, May Your Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.

Thank you for sharing this with us, Loyce!.


I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.
