Over the weekend I attended a book launch of a great author Tinashe Angeline La. Congrats once again Tinashe. I had a great time and was so inspired. Have just finished reading the book and it has invoked all kind of feelings in me. Thank you for sharing and am confident your book will be instrumental in future discussions on issues related to Domestic Violence, Christianity in a modern world, Culture& Marriage, African/traditional parenting styles, Migration, Racism etc. Throughout the reading I was reminded of Maya Angelou’s ‘Still I Rise’ and it seems she had you in mind when she wrote that poem
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
