(Arts Deacon Daniel Kibret)
When the farmer went to the court for a hearing, his own friends waited for him, not to plow or to plow. He goes crazy looking at the field.
How can this be done? Did Anthony do that? Did they do it to hurt me? In the past they did not love me, Is this the end of the human race? Does that mean my farm is gone? He goes crazy, brushing his hair.
An elder saw him from a distance. Listen to what he is saying. Then they said, “Please calm down.” ‘I say calm down. While you are watching it, “What hope do I have for this?” The old man heard him and said, “My friend, in spite of all this, we must continue to go mad, not correct.”
This is what is happening in Ethiopia. One sows wheat, the other weeds; One seeks to distort the other. When we are trapped here, it sprouts, When he wakes up, he pulls his leg; What many of us see and hear like that farmer is driving us crazy. But madness does not lead a country. Anger is not the answer. It is finished, it is finished, it is crushed, it is dead, it is buried, it is gone, it is finished; Crying out loud does not change the situation.
As our patriots seek to free our country from the yoke of Italy, they face many disappointments. The king’s departure, the flight of some famous people with Italy; Even the great patriarchs sided with Italy; Banda, who gives information for money and appointments; The propaganda thrown at them: The army that despairs of sustenance, The rumor that Italy is winning is on his cheek: The sacrifice of some heroic veterans on time, He made the long journey bitter.
Even national independence did not seem close to seeing or hearing. The whole world seemed to shine with Italy. The king did not want to hear their pleas for help. As time went on, everything seemed to be cut short.
We passed through that difficult time on the shoulders of patriots who understood that madness was not worth it. Realizing that Ethiopia’s independence is inevitable, it is with patriots who think of victory rather than challenge.
We went through the arm of patriots who understood that it was better to do something that would lead to a solution than to stand on one side and cut one’s hair.
The struggle of the patriots has grown from individual to union, from union to cooperation, from cooperation to front. Correcting things in the first year, They were looking for a better way.
They dismissed the other colonists, who were less than 150 years old, in five years. Someone said: It was sung here: Someone entered Italy, Someone betrayed the patriots, Another came to the warriors, They say we will destroy the patriots and take control of the country. They are going to mobilize against us. Stop listening to the gossip.
To cooperate only with those who leave what they do not do, Instead of thinking about the enemy, to think about the strength of the party; Determined to continue their insanity, they were released in 1930. Later, the patriotic struggle intensified and took shape. Ethiopia broke its yoke in a joint effort by prayer leaders and war veterans.
I think that’s what we need today. If we spend all our energy on crying and going crazy, crying and going crazy, We are correcting the error, We have to save people. If weeds grow on the ground, we will control them. But we need the land. Today, weeds do not necessarily mean weeds.
Let us not be discouraged if we do not have the courage to speak up. Let’s move on to our goal. We do not need anyone’s blessing or permission to take Ethiopia to the next level. “Ah” does not change our course. We are not going crazy, we are correcting.
