African hunter, at one time or another, your mental strength will be tested


As Martin Luther King, Jr. said  “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” 

Standing strong in the face of controversy remembering, adversity is another way to measure the greatness of a person.



Swahili proverb



At one time or another, your mental strength will be tested

If we believe in ourselves then we realize that promoting negative behavior would be harmful to our mental and physical selves. In addition, if we love ourselves, we certainly want what is best for the community.

Our society is not just trying to make meekly behavior acceptable. They are taking it one dangerous step further and trying to change the very definition of what is normal thereby changing the definition of self-preservation that has stood for millions of years.


They realize that the way to change these definitions is to change the thinking of the next generation – and I have to say the strategy is working. But we absolutely should not help them in their destructive task – on this issue or on any issue. It is simply not what is best for our inner God.
