Our Heroes and Heroines: It wasn’t Easy

Many a tears were shed,
Pools of blood shed,
Many lives were lost,
Struggles incomprehensible,
Pain unthinkable, unspeakable,
Ruled their days,
They bore it all

Not losing focus,
By faith,
They fought on,
Eyes on the goal,
The goal,
Independent Kenya

Tomorrow,
Freedom would come,
Peace and calm,
Would prevail,
A self governing nation,
They’d be,
Free from colonialism

At last,
Tomorrow dawned,
Freedom at last!
Was their song, their dance,
Freedom had come
Their hope,
Their dream,
Fulfilled

These are the people,
The brave people,
They are the heroes and heroines,
Heroes and heroines of our nation,
The heroes and heroines
Of Kenya’s Independence

We celebrate independence,
We celebrate the Republic of Kenya,
We celebrate our heroes,
We celebrate Jehovah Sabaoth,
The Lord who fought on with them,
Despite all the suffering,
The battle was won,
Kenya became a Republic,
The reason we celebrate today!

We celebrate today,
For our heroes, our heroines,
Were brave,
Brave enough to fight,
Fight selflessly,
For freedom!

As we celebrate today,
And every other day,
Being a republic,
Let’s not forget,
Our heroes and heroines
Who fought for us,

It wasn’t easy,
But it was worth it,
The reason we celebrate today,

God bless our heroes and heroines,
God bless The Republic of Kenya.

I Start today : 12/12/2010

Finally I’m here, starting my blog. It’s something that I have always wanted to do, it has been long over due, but gladly the day has dawned.If one want to really do something, one will get to do it, it’s never too late to start.

Mhhh….I remember had started one but it really did not work out then due to a number of reasons…Don’t wanna think about that now, what matters is that I have started,I won’t stop. I here the most important part of doing something is getting started. Now I have started.

Happy Birthday Felicity’s blog ~~https://felicityshiro.wordpress.com!

The timing could not have been better, as here in Kenya we celebrate Jamuhuri day, this is how I celebrate it, by launching this blog.

I don’t know what freedom means to you, but as for me, for now this is freedom, freedom to be me, to do what I love, to express me in the best way I know how- writing my thoughts out. I’ve found my freedom on space, cyber space. I’ve found freedom and confidence, freedom of space, freedom of finding my voice here, and confidence to share pieces of me with all who’ll happen to find their way to this page.

Today is just the beginning. Here I am getting to do this, and I mean to keep at it.
This is how I celebrate today, Jamuhuri (Independence)day 2010! Kenya at 47 years!felicityshiro.com just born, she going to grow big and beautiful. Check this space…..

Again Happy happy Birthday felicityshiro.com! I love you so, already..

Hello world!

At last I’m here. I’m so excited to start doing this -blogging.
