“I’m inspired to see different worlds coming together; people living in chaos but partying. It’s like the beauty of a painting that at the same time represents such a harsh reality.”

— Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga, Fragile Responsibility

Kenya Launches Bid To Be First African Olympic Host In 2024

If Cape Town didn’t get it in 2004, I’m highly suspect that Kenya will get selected, even if the event is 14 years away.   

But the bid demonstrates Africa’s new spirt and audacity.  While everyone is talking about the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China), we’re about to see a new Africa emerge that is far more transcendent.  


Blind Eye

It doesn’t matter how big or small the cage, if you close the door the dog still wants to roam free.

Barking, crying, and scratching persists for as long as you stay near.  The dog will go on until it hears complete silence, acknowledging that no one is there to help. 

Many of us turn a deaf ear to many of the global events going on around us.  You may be aware that there’s a civil war going on in Syria?  Or that half of India just lost power for days. By the way, you can invest in Africa now.  Are we simply too far on the big island of America to care?  

We can’t help out everyone but we can show acknowledgement and concern by listening to the people are living in it.
