“We must be ready to learn, unlearn and re learn in order to love and embrace ourselves with the singleness of vision or we shall run the risk to hate and destroy ourselves as fools.
” There is no way we can shy away from the fact that the multiple chains of evil militating against our very survival and peaceful coexistence presently are products of the corrupt seeds sown in the past.”
