Most times, we draw our inspiration from God and great people who have passed through Planet Earth. At inception, we chose to copy the resilience and determination of that Spanish explorer, Hernando de Soto, (1496-1542) who led the first European expedition deep into the territory of the modern-day United States; emerging the first person documented to have crossed the Mississippi River. Soto, upon reflection stated that: ‘’The present has finally prevailed; the past will not return; the future is here; we have the solid blocks to build a firm foundation therefrom, to secure a stable future.’’
“The probability that we may fall in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just; it shall not deter me.” — Abraham Lincoln
In the words of Sir Winston Churchill, ‘’we will continue to do our best, the very best we can. We shall continue doing so to the end. If the end proves us right; that is well and good. But if the end proves us wrong, a thousand angels, swearing that we have done the right thing shall make no change’’
Happy day to all our teeming readers and associates. It shall be well with all of us. PIX With Hans D’Orvile, former ADG Culture, at the UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France.
