According to my Miriam Webster dictionary, solidarity is defined as a feeling of unity between people who have the same interests, goals, objectives, standards etc.
common interest, objectives, and standards, but my question is: where are those common factors among our nations?Africa-Africa, America-Africa, Europe-Africa, Africa-Asia, Europe-America? and so on…
one of a BBC reporter once said that that “Kenyan is a hotbed of a terror attack”, “indeed it was in the recent years”, how many death and burial has Kenyan gone through as a nation? the most recent that killed over 147 comrades in Garissa. Kenya received messages of condolences from friends nations and neighboring countries.that was good,..
in the year 2013 Kenya faced another attack that killed more than 67 people including kids and a pregnant woman at the wastegate attack, the Kenyan government received condolences messages. that was good,..
in my beloved country D.R.C according to the “enough website =” project to end genocide and crime against humanity over 5.4 million dead in the last decade; to my little math, statistically 360,000 death per year in 15 years, over 900 deaths daily in that period of 15 years.
in Nigeria, Syria, just to name a few people are dying due to the terror attack, and no seems to care; a day after the stories ends.
am not attacking anyone or any nation neither any company but I would like some clear explanation, on why, when it comes to African nations in pain there’s limited solidarity between our nations, going back to Kenya both Garissa and wastegate attack, I didn’t witness any worldwide leaders gathering in Nairobi to mourn with leaders of Nairobi.
in Congo when innocent villagers died in Mutarule massacre, none of the leaders sent even a condolences message to the government of Congo,.
According to a report by Africa news A total of 38 people were killed on the night of June 7 in Mutarule locality, South Kivu province, in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo), an official source has confirmed. Fifteen people were burnt to death in a fire that was started by unknown assailants in a church. just to mention that.
here is my concern of this article, why Facebook did not use the Kenyan flag to show solidarity with the Kenyan people in the attacks that faced the country?, why did Facebook not use the DRC flag to show solidarity with over 5 million deaths?, why did Facebook did not use the Nigerian flag to show solidarity with that nation? And why has it used the French flag to show solidarity? I may be ignorant to the matter that’s why am asking this.
I loved the way that the entire world shows solidarity with hashtags(#bringBackOurGirsl, #prayForKenya, #PrayForParis, #JeSuisCharlie,etc) its a sign of solidarity and let us dwell in that as human beings.
Why is it when it comes to powerful countries, such as America, France, etc are under pain everyone seems to be a deep concern?, when Charlie was attacked worldwide leaders traveled to France to sympathize with Paris, when it comes to African countries telegram are sent into their offices.
its time as young youth thinks on the matter before its late, the small things we see can transform our lives or make them worse in our nations
My deepest condolences to families loved ones of all those who lost their members in Paris attack, and my prayers go with the nation of France. Not forgetting my brothers and sister died in Asia, America and my mother Land Africa.
peace in Africa,
Peace in America,
peace in Asia,
peace in Europe,
peace in Australia.
