Hello...it's the short dude again. This time Imma talk about faith. Not her, but the spiritual faith. I don't even have a perfect defination of what it is but wikipedia told me it is: 

Faith, the confidence or trust in something or somebody despite the absence of proof.
Bad faith, a legal concept in which a malicious motive on the part of a party in a lawsuit undermines their case
Bad faith (existentialism), mauvaise foi, a philosophical concept wherein one denies one's total freedom, instead choosing to behave as an inert object
Fáith, the Irish for "prophet, seer"
Good faith, bona fides, the mental and moral state of honesty
Religion, any specific system of belief ("one's faith")
Religious belief, the belief in the reality of the mythological, supernatural, or spiritual aspects of a religion.
The first of the theological virtues in Catholic theology
Trust (social sciences) in a person or entity
Uberrima fides (Utmost good faith), the legal doctrine of certain contractual obligations

I came home some evening and my brother was un-usually happy. Everything seemed ok. Better actually. I hadn't even changed to my gym clothes and he was telling me what the Bible says about faith and quoting a few guys here and there, like Moses, Abraham, Elijah, Elisha...you know where am going..right? I chipped in kidogo kidogo without killing the heart of the story.

FAITH. 

That day, he had a prayer request. It was common. I was to pray to pray on my end, while at work, and He while he was wherever he was..Trust me, we had no tight schedule. It was loose and working. Gave my request time. He did too so, which I learnt he did through the narration. His prayer about me had been answered. It was one of those instant answers from God. He believed. We Believed. We Prayed.  I usually remind God that the reason why I pray and never give up is because I've seen lots of wonders and stuff that even science hits a snag while trying to explain. God created science. Most of the stuff we are taught in colleges and other places are all efforts in understanding God's might. 

Reader, I lemmi say am not the pastor kind of guy. I'm not clean. I do pray though. I've seen what prayers can do. Never leave that. Always remember God in all you do. He's just awesome.

Back in the day, my granny narrated a story to me about some brave hunters. I liked the story, even though I didn’t have brains to think about any inner meaning. My mind drama was all about the hunters setting traps and getting some home.

I later saw it and decided to share.

 

Two friends set out on a hunting expedition deep in the forest. They were seasoned hunters and knew their way around the forest. They knew where to find which game and at what time of the day. They could track any animal they were keen to pursue right into its haven and slay it. No animal was too big or too cunning or ferocious for this pair. But this particular day, luck seemed to evade them. For hours on end, they crisscrossed the deep jungle tracking, chasing and chancing, all to no avail. It was getting late. They were getting weary, thirsty and hungry. But giving up was never an option to the duo. It is at this point of desperation that they decided to take an unfamiliar route leading into a section of the forest known to harbour little or no game at all. Hardly had they done 100 metres when they bumped onto a large lone male hyena. Unfortunately, it was taboo and abominable to eat hyenas in their community. One of the two hunters said to his partner: "I know it is taboo to eat hyena meat, but is it taboo to kill one?" His friend replied: "No, it is not." So the two agreed to shoot the hyena, which they did. This done, they also were in agreement that it is not taboo to skin or even roast a hyena. Once roasted, the aroma of the juicy hyena meat was too much to resist. It is here that one of them again asked his friend: "As far as I can recall, it is not abominable to taste hyena meat, or is it?" His friend quickly replied: "Of Course not! It is perfectly ok to taste!" The two hungry hunters tasted the hyena meat to their fill. What remained, they took back to the village without disclosing what animal it was. The whole village gathered to feast. They had never tasted such sweet meat like this before! The chief demanded to know which animal that was. The two hunters, left with no other option had to reveal to the chief what had happened. The chief after a brief consultation wth the elders immediately revoked the taboo on hyena meat, but announced that hyenas can only be hunted with the direct authority of the village chief.

 

It took the bravery of two hungry hunters to change an age old taboo.

It took the bravery of two desperate hunters for a whole village to discover that there is no harm whatsoever in eating hyena meat

It might take your desperate act of bravery to liberate humanity from some self imposed rules, regulations, taboos, name it.

 

Our limitations are self imposed! We continue to lack in a world of plenty.

Turejelee yote.

Niko Pwani nikiota juu ya vile tulikuwa

Kama vijana, tulipokuwa huru

Nimesahau ilivyohisi kabla dunia ianguke

Tofauti baina yetu

Na maili milioni

 

Hello ‘toka kwa mataa

Mara elfu kakupigia

Kuomba msamaha kwa niliyotenda

Lakini mteja hapatikani

Hello ‘toka kwa mataa

Mpenzi nisamehe kwa kuvunja moyo

Lakini ni kama haikujalishi

Kamwe.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 General Assembly resolution 217 A as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected.

 

Preamble

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,

Ahem..Get me popcorns ASAP! I don't know why but this made me go 'whaaaat!?' Yeah. Whaaat! Nyakundi, who is a blogger, is suing ntv's Larry. #TheTrend Host. I like the program, for starters. Mind you, am not picking sides here. If I were, not on nyakundi's. 

So, why is he suing Larry? The best i have on that is something about him being mentioned on his blog.  I personally read the blog titled, OF BROKE ‘BIGWIGS,’ SOCIAL MEDIA ‘INFLUENCERS’ AND SH50M TWEETS.  It appeared on nation too, as the edited version. (link) I like all matters fun and this is one of it. Nashangaa kama nyakundi hakua ameona article mpaka leo ama nini???? Ok, tuachane na hiyo, may be, he tweets and takes little time on the internet reading articles from other sources. Hope not. 

I love reading articles online. They educate and make you laugh. Like this one, you get to know something about bidco, ndela, some millions and other stuff. I seriously hate the fact that some dudes can stoop that low. If all that is false, which I highly doubt is, I would be on Nyakundi's side. This time, tuko #teamLarry. I don't like him sometimes. He happens to host a shw I like though. 

Below are the screen shots for those two pages. 

Both un-edited n edited versions.
