I believe life should be celebrated every day. I believe respect should be given in accordance to all those who deserve it, irrespective of affiliation to which ever organisation, tribe and what not.
You don’t wait till a person passes on before you give him or her the due praise. In spiritual terms, that is known as hypocrisy and its an attribute we need to urgently delete from our persona.
The works of man should not go unnoticed till he passes on. As long as he lives, let us support him as Rome wasn’t in one day, in the same way his works will only be seen after a period of time. People who fail to acknowledge the living do not deserve to acknowledge the dead.
Great men have lived, great men have passed and great men continue to live. Acknowledge those who live presently, and solemnly remember those who have passed. R-E-S-P-E-C-T
