Until lions have their historians – African proverb

Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt will always glorify the hunter. – African proverb

Forgiveness is not about giving up your rights. When those entitled demand, we may need to recede for the moment but not for long. You don’t need to wait for an academic to write your history either. Write your own. Educate yourself to write, if you want to do it ‘properly’. But essentially, if you stick with love so others can relate to you, they will share your words. Keep writing that there is nothing cool about the reign of greed; that ‘getting rich’ by deception and exploitation no longer win them admiration nor social status; that addiction to money is an ill-health, not wealth.
