Fellow believers! Gathered here in your thousands!!
Beliefs are inspiring.
Beliefs are motivating.
Beliefs are essential. But beliefs alone are not enough.
We more than anyone else know that beliefs alone are not enough. Let me explain.
The foundation of our great Kenyan Nation has – as its fundamental philosophical underpinnings – the belief in a bright future for everyone. We today are a great moving force for progress and prosperity and I believe that with all of us diligently working together for one another, this will prepare us to overcome every challenge of the present and in the future. This holds true even after all we have gone through 50 years down the line.
We must all understand and believe in what we do. Our fundamental belief, the ethos of our state, our spirit, continues to be; how to improve the quality of life, first, to the people most in need, as we improve the quality of life for everyone. To achieve this we must all do what we believe in. I ask everyone to join with me in believing that this spot of kindness, this land we call Kenya could rightfully be referred to as the capital of paradise, in spite of the attacks.
In spite of the corrupt, in spite of the poor in spirit; In spite of devil of disunity.Once we work together and are prepared to put in the necessary hard work with all our determination and dedication, we can make this country a vibrant, productive, prosperous and progressive nation that would bring out the best in all of us. It does not matter if you are red, yellow, green, black or brown. We in Kenya are committed to working with everyone for the benefit of all.
We in the national youth groups believe that our Citizens have unlimited potential and can make our community and our country a shining example to other countries around the region and the world as a country working together for one another. We must work hard in every community, to make this country a better place. A country is as strong as its weakest community or weakest citizen. We must all be ready to put in the hard work necessary to make the dream of a better country a reality. We all know that we can achieve whatever we set out to do regardless of race, color, creed, religious persuasion, geographic location, young or old, but to do so we must genuinely believe in ourselves. We must believe in our unlimited potential every second, every minute of the day to bring out the best in all of us and we must respect each other and share each other’s pain and successes.
I believe in the nationhood of Kenya. I believe it can be made to exist in its most vibrant form. I believe it extends from the shores of lake Victoria to the Indian Ocean and to the countries in extremities. I believe that each one of us carries in our hearts not only the burden of doing well for the sake of ourselves, but the burden of doing well and seeing that this beautiful nation, Kenya does well for the sake of all the people. This I believe with all my heart.
I believe in the practical equality of opportunity for all citizens, when we achieve it, with great results. I believe that all citizens must have a fair chance and level playing field to make of themselves all that is within them, to a fair share of all that this country has to offer and to reach the highest point of their capacities. This holds particular meaning for all those tens of thousands of young people who are just starting out on that journey or are aspiring to becoming productive contributors to this nation that we are trying to build and in which they will live and toil as they raise their own new families.
We in Kenya know that this country faces many challenges. We see those challenges everyday as we travel around the country, and most of you know them better than I do. But I also believe that Kenya has the capacity to overcome each one of those challenges. We in the most remote areas believe that this country can mobilize more money, people and resources than ever before with clear policy prescriptions, realizable programs within a defined vision and good, strong, sensitive leadership. We believe that Kenya has world-beating talent, ambition, energy and excellence. Quite a lot of it is right here right now! Right here in this audience and readers.
Our highly trained work force is a major tool for progress, prosperity and stability. We in the suburbs believe that our unity in diversity is a recipe for innovation, sustained growth and development.
We believe in our fellow citizens. We believe with full confidence that if each citizen fulfills his or her duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, we will overcome every challenge we face, including this inept, spiteful and corruption Menaces we face…
Lets all celebrate Kenya@50!!!
