My TED story

Heroes and role model comes in different forms. For a small village in developing country e.g. Kenya, the role model/hero comes mostly in form of books If only I can buy a dozen "Ben Carson" book "Gifted Hand"/ other life changing books and give to countless youth; their lives might make a U-turn just as mine did. Word is a powerful tool, a real success story is a life changing mental surgery

If you have NEVER been to Africa, when someone mentions "Africa" or you hear "Africa", what is the FIRST thing that comes into your mind?
Dear Awesome Contributors, As I am writing this it is 2hrs and 43 mins to the end of our conversation. For the past 1 month your have contributed your thoughts and surely it was an amazing journey to learn different thoughts about Africa. Thanks for taking your time and space to think about our "Beautiful Continent" and sharing your thoughts. I will leave you with a quote by one of our contributors Dennis Poriot..... (The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa - Richard Mullin) If I don't see you in any other part of the world, then let meet in Kenya... Love, Mary

Hey Jessica, Thanks for sharing your thought. OMG......it is ridiculous to me too. After reading your example and I didn't know what to say other than it is quite ridiculous.... And yes Africans faces challenges such as poverty and diseases...the great thing is that Africa as a continent coupled with caring people outside Africa has more resources and power to overcome some of this challenges. I hope we move to this direction of solving our issues soon than later. Love, Mary

Hey Denis, Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts courageous.I totally agree with your view about Africa...yes it is a "wonderland". Dark people are beautiful and so is everyone else....I think having varieties of color in the universe adds to the touch of beauty. Make your dream come true and visit Africa....it is beautiful and you might be tempted to settle there....so be prepared when you travel. Wish you all the best. Every part of the world has it own challenges.. it is matter of accepting and looking for ways to make life more meaningful and better. Enjoy Ireland...and visit your other home (Africa) Love, Mary
