Humans are all gifted and unique in our own different way irrespective of religious, political, ethnic or tribal background; God created us uniquely and place value on us over all he had created. Ethnic, tribal or racial sentiments has created division in the world as nations are rising against nations, individuals against individuals as lives and properties are lost. No human race is superior to another, we are all equal.
This is a Clarion call on all to shun racial injustice and uphold peace and love amongst ourselves.
In countries where there are diverse people from different background, there will always be passionate arguments about how to draw lines when it comes to government actions. That's how democracy works. But democracy will tribe better when individual value are recognised and respected.
From inception during post-colonial era, we have experienced patriotism slide into jingoism, xenophobia, the stifling of dissent, we have seen faith metamorphosed into self-righteousness, closed mindedness, and cruelty toward others. Self-reliance and independence transforming into selfishness and license ambition into greed and fanatic desire to succeed at any cost.
We have all lost values for life as we are betraying our values. We hold the truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that we are all endowed by God with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness. All these simple words does not only describe the foundation of our government but the substance of our common creed.
During electioneering debate, value should be the core topic to discuss in order to sensitize the public on importance of individual value. If this can be done by candidates contesting in an election, individuals will know the importance of value.
