Courage & Love , this time from Ethiopia

November 16, 2011

An Ethiopian teacher ” Yenesew ( Ma men ) Gebre ” Courageously commits self-immolation in protest of injustice & oppression by the authorities in the Ethiopian government. it seems a replica of a Tunisian street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi poured inflammable liquid over his body and set himself alight outside the local municipal office by December 17, 2010, that ignites popular uprising in the Arab world & results series of  Revolutions to toppling down despots. Can Yenesew’s self-ablazement launch our version of Revolution ?  Who Knows ? ! but, I HOPE !

Yenesew Gebere, An Ethiopian Teacher who commits self- immolation

I love this poem  By: Corey Fauchon

Courage is what makes us
Courage is what divides us
Courage is what drives us
Courage is what stops us

Courage creates news
Courage demands more
Courage creates blame
Courage brings shame

Courage shows in school
Courage determines the cool
Courage divides the weak
Courage pours out like a leak

Courage puts us on a knee

Courage helps us flee

Courage makes us plea

Courage makes us free !!!
