Eskinder Is Free

Am a victim of a system that replaced my identity with the culture of dormancy, negligence and carelessness in my nation part of a generation that is disconnected from its values while pursuing western among the lost generation guided by the so called peace that remain present until you are silent.
I am ashamed to confess that I know a lot about the Bahrain and the Georgian activist than my own brother who is fighting for my own freedom. I am ashamed to tell you that my profile picture is Trayvon Martin instead of Eskinder family that gave birth for freedom in prison.
Just because Eskinder is confined in a tiny cell doesn’t mean Eskinder is not free.Eskinder is free because he paid the necessary price to prison his body and free his mind. It’s you and me who are physically free but not mentally; we are not free because we are censoring the truth and leveraging it to lie, we are tied with the invincible chains of fear that restrain our journey towards freedom, we are playing the real character of Judah and Petrous in the real life theatre.
Fear your own fear because it’s the greatest weapon your enemy have got than its AK-47 stockpile. Your fear can’t even guarantee your today safety let alone your tomorrow survival.Your fear is a sign on a blank check it cannot cash your safety, security and freedom.
Our fathers who prevailed over fascist inherited us the bravery check by ripping apart the fear deal. Our father’s bravery check for freedom was so valuable that was cashed for centuries by wise peoples like Marcus Garvey, Dr Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X and Mandela .Now it’s up to you and me to sign or rip the fear deal and hand it to the future generation.
