The way of life for Africans through our forefathers( ancestors ) was powerful and brings peace and unity among Africans.
Cultures and rituals that we're handed down by the greater Spirit. Brought us close and powerful. The animals and nature use to be our strength and we were connected with it, from the young age children we taught about their culture and mostly respect by elders.
But now we are disconnected and lost. We no longer ask for wisdom and knowledge to elders , families are tone apart and we are praising the religion that is against our nature and insult our ancestors.
We lost trust and patience to our roots, we are are too civilised that we look down even on our parents and choose to follow foreigners cultures.
We have lost the connection with nature and we are the opposites of what we should be. Even when we pray we no longer use our God given languages, we only use the one that we were taught at school. " My Africa my pride " where is our pride where is our culture.
