Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day Card (Wikimedia Commons)
I still remember the lovely voices of the Nursery and Kindergarten pupils, when I was a teacher at Javard International School, shouting:

Danye si dzim, me lɔ wo ŋutɔ... (language: ee)

Meaning: My mother who gave birth to me, I love you so much!

That one line is the beginning of a rhythm. The energy, love and power that is used by these kids to say this aloud can be heard by the whole school and beyond. As I write it's echoing.... :-D

Mothers do a great job even when fathers refuse to do their part, they add it up to theirs. What a lovely mother they are!

The only thing you can give back to your mother is the LOVE.. I'll like to use this post to say Happy Mother's Day to my mum, her twin sister, Ghanaian and African mothers, and to ALL responsible mothers around the globe.

Ghana is 57! Happy Independence Day! #Ghana57

Borrowed from Google Ghana
Waking up around 4 am today (6th March, 2014) it started raining heavily with thunderclaps and lightening all over.
Immediately I said to myself:

Even nature knows......

The rains didn't spare the Black Star Square in Accra as well:
At 7 AM I saw my brothers seriously getting ready for the independence day parade in my community. While it was still raining, I'd no choice to send one of them to their school campus under my umbrella.

I didn't make it to any of these gatherings today. And am trying to believe what I saw last year didn't happen.

On my way to Ho today I saw many students along as usual.

But one thing: Does Independence Day celebration only means march pass by students, security personnel and others?

Some Facebook posts I liked:

Happy Independence Day!! Let's make Mother Ghana proud.
