United in diversity
27 September 2013, 14:04
The unity I saw among Kenyans during the Westgate mall attack is one to be admired by everyone but the question remains; do we have to wait for disaster to happen so that we can unite?
We need to get to a point where we as Kenyans know that we are sons and daughters of our motherland Kenya and there is a lot to unite us than to divide us.
When our forefathers fought for our independence, they did so for us to live in harmony and unity with a purpose and that is reflected in the words of our national anthem.
As we went to donate blood for Westgate mall attack victims, no blood was classified according to our ethnic tribes; when we sent our monetary support, it was not categorised according to our political affiliations.
Even in the siege, the wrath of the terrorist did not discriminate against anyone.
We must purpose not to be united just by grief but aim to forever remain united for the benefit of our country and for our own good.
We are one and Kenya is our homeland.
