You taught me that life has no duplicate. The only legacy we leave behind is the way we influence or affect those around us. You have never discriminated based on religion, class or where we come from. And I ask myself, if that is the kind of upbringing you had, where did we go wrong? Where did we lose it all?
I am in a country where nothing works for lack of better words, ‘in a standstill’. And I am wondering . . . what happened to the love for country. Where are the compatriots of this country. What happened to the spirit of brotherhood? Everyday we sing the National Anthem but then our leaders sing a different tune.
My heart bleeds but today I celebrate the life you have lived. The life you handed over to me.
You lived life to the fullest and your memories and legacies will go generations further.
Happy Baiday Old man
