ERITREA: A SHINING STAR NATION
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Harriet Tubman
Slowly but surely, the civilized nations are recognizing Eritrea as a shining ‘star’ nation on the Horn of Africa and Red Sea Basin. Even though, this peaceful nation is surrounding with havoc and endless crisis in the Horn of Africa, it has sustained its course of paths of achieving its goals and dreams. According to history, Eritreans have always determined to achieve their goals in regardless of all obstacles, of all odds, and of all variety of hurdles that they have to jump and succeed. No matter what, Eritreans have ‘keep their eyes on the prize.’ As result of this, the sons and daughters of Eritrea are becoming stars among stars in the Universe. The success of Eritrea, as a shining star among stars of African nations, lies in the hearts and minds of her progenies. Because the people are the government; and the government are the people. Perhaps it is hard to fathom and to reckon that an African nation could indeed have a people of government. Eritrea does!
"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." John F. Kennedy
From the ancient civilization of Adulis to present, Eritreans have asked what they can do for their beloved country. Even the camels have asked what they can do…! In the past and present, Eritrea as African nation has faced a colossal obstacles that no other nations have gone thru in this Universe. Unfortunately, Eritrea-as an African nation- has abundant wealth of resources, Red Sea Coastlines, two ports (Massawa and Assab), and great [geo-strategic] geographical locations on Horn of Africa. As result of this, Eritrea has constantly faced invasion from the Super-Power of Nations to spread their realms. Today, this great nation has faced biased after biased reports by opportunistic journalists and unethical activists who do not have moralities and truths in their consciousness. The incompetent TPLF regime, at the expenses of Amhara, Oromo, Afar, Somalia, and other tribes, has taken an oath to bring variety of havoc and irreversible destructions on Eritrea and Horn of Africa as well. Yet, Eritrean government has never been intimidated and deterred from its ‘eye on the prize’. Today, the government of people is on various endeavour of building Eritrea with its citizen’s capacity of powers. The greatest of all wealth in Eritrea is her progenies who are residing inside and outside of the country.
“Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.” Abraham Lincoln
Eritrean Government is [For and By] the People: Eritrean government, more than two decades, have relentlessly been placing foundational institutions to the remote villages and cities that were truly neglected under colonizers. Under the colonizers, Eritrea, as an African nation, has severely faced rampant destructions and chronic underdevelopments: no universal educational institutions, no universal infrastructures (quality roads), no universal health-cares, no universal social stability, and so on. Especially during colonizers, the deceased-Haile Selassie and butcher-Mengistu Hail Mariam of Ethiopia, Eritrea was almost completely destroyed. During those dark-era, there was only one higher educational institution in city of Asmara; there were few out-dated roads in the entire country; there were few low-standards hospitals for entire country; all remote villages were denied from any developments; there were chronic water-shortages throughout the country; there were high-rates of morbidity and mortality ratios throughout country; there were high rates of infections such as malaria and polio; so on. When the EPLF (Eritrean People Liberation of Front) in May 24, 1991 liberated Eritrea from butcher-Derg of Ethiopia, they were faced with a mammoth of tasks of rebuilding Eritrea from zero-grounds. Perhaps it’s been a miracle works of macro-developments in what Eritrean government has accomplished and sustained throughout the country in very short time. All the micro/macro of developments of Eritrea that were accomplished by Eritrean government was succeeded in hostile environs and constantly harassments by the thugs of TPLF-regime. Indeed, the civilized world should embrace the noble efforts that Eritrean government has embarked and engaged to uplift Eritrea from abject poverty, eradicating all chronic diseases, securing food security at national levels, eradicating illiteracies, eradicating tribalism, eradicating corruptions, and so on. Furthermore, the civilized nations could learn from Eritrean government that all its efforts of rendering concrete developments at macro-micro levels for its people; while in the meantime it’s surrounded with the thugs of TPLF regime who has taken an oath to bring cohesive miseries to hundredths of millions citizens in the Horn of Africa.
The Proliferations of Eritrean Stars: The world has witnessed- perhaps more shocking news- that the sons of Eritrea participated in the ‘Le Tour De France’. More shockingly as it was when the sons of Eritrea in Tour De France became victorious in their endeavours. As everyone knows, Eritrea has been tarnished by unethical activists and opportunistic journalists who are merely looking to enrich their resume and/or to enhance their careers prospect at expenses of Eritrean people. These parasitic journalists and unethical activists, who have relentlessly engaged in hidden political-agenda to tarnish the image and integrity of Eritrea and Eritrean people in the world, have not succeed in their futile missions. Contrary to their unethical missions, Eritrean people have gained glory of strengths to show the reality and to the truths about their beloved Eritrea nation. When the Lion of Mountain (Daniel Teklehaimanot) in ‘Le Tour De France’ wave the beautiful flags of Eritrea, it was glittering image of reality what is in the grounds of Eritrea. Also, it was an illuminating image of reality that the African cyclists were capable of reaching their goals and dreams despite of unwarranted obstacles. When Eritrean Daniel Teklehaimanot stood like mighty giant and mighty proud Eritrean cyclist to collect his trophy, it was a moment of glittering image of truth what is in the grounds of Eritrea. The forthcoming of the truth at Tour De France has shattered all of vicious lies about Eritrea. Eritrea is a peaceful African nation and, it has a lot of aspirational goals to uplift her sons and daughters to utmost levels in the Universe.
"It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop." – Confucius
The civilized world have finally understood that Eritrea and Eritreans are indeed inseparable entity despite of all harassments, negative propaganda, tarnishing image and integrity, sanctions, and so on. Eritrea, as peaceful nations, would not be deterred from chiselling its paths; and from crafting its own destinies…in the Universe. As result of this, Eritrean cyclists Merhawi Kudus, Daniel Teklehaimanot, and Natnael Berhane are the sons of Eritrea. These gallant Eritrean cyclists have made a history. Certainly they have not only paved the way forthcoming Eritrean generations but also for Africans, as well. First and foremost, congratulations to the parents and loved ones of Daniel Teklehaimanot, Merhawi Kudus, Natnael Berhane. Congratulations to beloved Eritrea and Eritreans all over the world. Last but not least, congratulation to Africa and to our beloved Universe.
“In defiance, Eritrea was born; from victory, Eritrea has become a shining ‘Star’ nation.”
