"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

It has taken me this long to write a post about the unfortunate events that led to Ghana's exit from the World Cup.   Tears have been shed, heartbroken to comatose to reflective we have been, and now all that is to  be said is that we are proud, and we are grateful for the ride that Ghana was able to give to the African continent.

 African skies may be dark, but the Black Stars will shine again :)

I will not rehash the game, nor will I find YouTube videos of the rollercoaster events.  They do not need to be relived.  I would like to remember the euphoria that came from the Black Stars' journey to the Quarter Finals.  Seeing them battle through against all odds was a privilege and as FOOLISH FOOL has said, let us look to build on this experience at the 2012 Africa Cup and in Brasil in 2014.  This is a young team, they can learn from this and grow into a global powerhouse.

Gyan showed a fortitude that is admirable by taking the first penalty after missing moments before.  Though I may never understand why Prince Boateng never got to take a penalty, the boys fought like champions and even if they didn't win the World Cup, Africa will always remember how the Black Stars were the ones to step up to the challenge when the motherland called.

Unfortunately my World Cup Fever has been tempered...I am emotionally drained.  I HATE PENALTIES. At this point we might as well go with Germany to win, at least they have a bit of Ghana on their team ha ha ha ha!
