– Blaze a Trail for Posterity to Tread
“It seems easier to simply lounge in one’s comfort zone, without affronting someone, somewhere, somehow, when ethnic, spiritual, or social challenges confront society. You are not sure of how others would react to your views. WHAT IS SURE is that you will die someday if you talk, and you will die sometime if you don’t. Some of the melancholiest things that could happen to a human are to live without being heard, die unsung, and be forgotten effortlessly, without leaving a trail in the sands of time. Consequently, I avail myself the opportunity of being heard, for I am cognizant of the truth that a man would ONLY spend his time and die – no one expends the world endlessly. The late Dr. Martin Luther King Junior, Mother Teresa, and the living Dalai Lama are not spoken about today for lounging in their comfort zones yesterday. They ventured out of their comfort zones and blazed trails for posterity to tread.” – Dele Ajaja
