The Last Word, 14th November 2014- Ed Miliband, Eunice & Entrance

14 Nov

I don’t know much about UK Politics or that my vote will make any difference, since I am a Kenyan. Yet the story of Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband continues to inspire me. From TV journalist to politics and with the upcoming General Elections, will he become the next Prime Minister? Here’s the inspiring part of him when he was interviewed by BBC’s Nick Robinson and he is relentless and stubbornly positive attitude despite lack of faith from people:

I recently read Sheryl Sandberg’s (CEO of Facebook) book Lean In and one quotation she included was from Former US Secretary of State Madeline Albright’s, which is “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” This stuck with me and slowly I started to look back, pay attention to the present and see that in fact this is really the case, Women can destroy Women.

Luckily there are brave young girls like Malala Yousafzai who stood up for her basic human right of education against the Taliban and survived a bullet and recently won the Nobel Peace Prize. Her organization is collectiong Girl Heroes stories and making a change wherever possible, including right here at home, Eunice’s story and poem is amazing. Have a watch for yourself:

Finally on the local front:

I realized when there is an exit from the old, there is an entrance for the new.
