"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

HIV Issues

Two recent articles on HIV/ AIDS issues in Namibia and Zambia are a reminder of the perturbing effect the virus is having on the continent.  I do believe that mandatory testing where enforceable is a step in figuring out exactly how many people have the disease and also will help to curb and even start to reverse the pandemic. However, doing things to people without their knowledge and consent is deplorable!

We need to be taking care of each other, not drawing swords on one another!
