Sonko’s Advise To Kenyans In Diaspora
In the few days in New York for the very first time in his life,Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko met and interacted with many Kenyans who wanted to know how he has made it in Kenya without the desire to move out of the Country.
In his response,he gave them this advise/wisdom:
One attribute of Kenyans or People who set the pace today is that they were bold and visionary enough to see what others did not see and act on them before others realized what was happening. We cannot roll time backwards but we can leap forward in time and make what others call the future our present. This means that by the time they get to that future it will be our own past.
When at that future, the pain, the uncertainty and rejection of the present will suddenly no longer be seen as such but as a passage necessary for the migration from today to tomorrow to happen. Now think of yourself today. Think of your weakness, your shortcomings, your uncertainties and your fears.
Today is the seed that needs to be planted for tomorrow. Once we have the seed, there is hope. However, having the seed is not enough. What we do with the seed is the greatest determinant of our tomorrow. So, many have given up because of the pressures of today. They lacked the crucial understanding that the pressure if handled right was the first fruits of the pleasure to come. Every trial has an expiry date.
