Several Thoughts About Teddy Afro and Education

Teddy Afro’s glorification of a despotic tyrant such as Haile Selassie are highly insensitive and are meant to greatly minimize – if not outright deny – one of the most horrific periods in our history. But most importantly, he should come to terms with the very fact that Eritrea is an independent and sovereign country. Period.

Eritrea: The Story of Resiliency and Triumph In the Face of Persistent Fire

Understanding Eritrea’s Blessings – Peaceful, stable and beautiful. Those who understand these blessings can deal better while those that fail to appreciate what Eritrea is blessed with will suffer needlessly.

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

In life, those who fail to understand their blessing are bound to lose everything. Religious experts say that the devil will always try to point out what you are missing instead of the blessings. And it is clearly hard to think about blessings when faced with tremendous challenges and particularly when the challenges are existential in nature as is the case of Eritrea.

And those that fail to appreciate what Eritrea is blessed with will suffer needlessly to the point of losing their lives unnecessarily.

Eritrea was tried like no other and managed to withstand tremendous challenges. These are challenges that rendered many countries once considered invincible to succumb and ultimately became failed states ala Libya, Syria and Iraq.
