USA, December 02, 2004 - As of today, it’s close to a year since the killing of innocent Anuak people by the government of Ethiopia. The killing was an evil act with the intention of eradicating all Anuak in which the international communities were aware of and have done nothing about. In our part it is clear that we [Anuak] took the responsibilities facing our enemy alone and we vigorously talked among ourselves about the incident more than anyone could have imagined. Yet, our effort and strength to shows the unity against the common enemy is missing. To do that, we have to think critically, sort out ourselves and determined who we really are and where we stand. One might know that the impossibility of making something out of someone that he is really not! If it is impossible to make a dog out of a sheep then, how will it be possible to make leader out of a follower? Now, I am going to step aside and offer my opinion to all of you, let’s assume there are leaders, followers, and the indecision makers, if you don’t get yourselves out of the current mess that you are in, you will be shattered again by the same government that killed your people in the past, then you will realize that history is repeating itself. Impressively you have talked the talk and oh boy, you are good at it! Now is the right time to face the enemy and walk the walk and you better be good at it too.
