Inform, Inspire, Embolden. Reconcile!

The Third Way

We have had very good discussions in the U-Turn articles. The majority were genuine exchanges of views raising very legitimate concerns and contributing real value to our understanding of alternative routes. They have been a great input to how we should proceed especially with the need to force our presence by bulldozing our way through.…

Creative Destruction

Let me start by first sincerely apologizing to Awate, the website, for referring to it as “extreme opposition website” (thanks SY for calling my attention). For some reason, I believe, some might have interpreted it as saying “extremist” website. Thank you for tolerating our always unintended transgressing. You have done a fantastic job and we…

THE U-TURN SPIRIT

. Some friends have suggested that we need a clear path and a focus on issues this time and proposed that I make a little introduction as a regular contributor. Also bowing the my good friend SY, here is what I thought any good friend would want to know: I was born to a mother…

The Mask Behind The Grab

‘Thank You’ to all the people who take their time to leave a few notes at the end of the articles, mine included. That impresses me most and deserves all the credit for getting us rolling. I couldn’t find it again for proper referencing and I don’t remember the exact words either but one particular…

What Opposition!?

In the last couple of weeks, I wrote three full blown articles and every time I finished one, I keep asking myself “So what?” I save a copy of the article and delete the original (original? on Microsoft!? Just to make me feel that some of the old “shredder” ways are still around). Part of…

Quicksand!

Bear with me please! I think we are in quicksand and we need to cross a few steps before starting the journey. By “we” I mean people (Eritreans) who have already crossed over from the stage of “what should I be doing?” into the stage of “how should I do it best for maximum impact?”…

The Trade Of Defiance!

Thanks a lot to every good friend who took the time to throw in a few but very valuable words in the comments section of my previous article. All of the comments, I must admit, are on spot and none have said anything that I do not fully agree with and accept to follow word…
