congo has a bright future

There is still hope for D.R.Congo if us as women stand together to preach peace from our families to the whole nation. we are able to save this nation.
If you rise and speak your mind ; put it into actions. Women ; we are the keepers of life. We are the great educators ;we can educate a whole nation;yes we can. Given a chance to prove ourselves by helping us live in peace. Allow us to show how hard we can work. I believe that if Africa and the world could be united , and be of one accord forgetting personnel interests ;just acting human to save lives of this innocent people dieing. To save the future of this children who have no idea of what's going on...
I was there once; I know how it feels to be in war when you are just a kid. Because i experienced my first war when i was 5 year old only. I was refugee; I can remember my dad caring me on his back running ;just to protect our lives.. Congo will not suffer if you join us and protest. We will all enjoy the goodness of the land that God has given us. I believe that there will be more to share if peace is restored in my country.

A bright future awaits our children because we have chosen not keep inside our hearts this burning hanger for peace; we choose to speak out loud so that the whole world will consider and do something. As human we are meant to be brother's keepers. If i suffer as a Congolese woman the world suffers. But despite all that i have hope.

You Reveal Our Hearts

Beautiful article Grace. You convey our Hope, you speak our Minds, you reveal our Hearts, and you share the secret that will bring in the new Congo and the new world - being united, as One, and speaking into this new world all the beauty and soundness we not only envision, but are enjoying in our hearts and among one another, in some measure.

Thank you dear sister,
