my zimbabwe’s heroes acre shame
So we always make fun of the ignorance of Americans about their own country but I had a horrible moment recently.
When the local broadcaster Zimbabwe TV was showing the heroes of the struggle for independence from colonial rule I recognised so few of the names I felt a terrible sense of shame.
I could identify British and American people but my own heroes, people who laid their lives so that i could get a chance at liberty and all that other stuff were strangers.
I am not gonna do the easy thing and blame the system cause I should be showing my appreciation for these sacrifices myself. It’s disturbing,and I wont make any excuses for it
