Strong men and women needed

Dear Editor

Re: “You rub my back, and I’ll rub your back” – revisited.

In this time of testing, we find out how many strong men and women remain to challenge the sickness that has come upon our people. 

No warrior can be 100% certain of the outcome but the coward stays home, stays silent as the most sacred treasures of our culture are raped and pillaged. 

The warrior rises up in love so that the ancestors know that he returns their love and so that they are not ashamed before the ancestors of other lands and do not hear the taunt, 

“So there are no men among your people”
