Oct 15, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— The strength of mind will change our environment no matter whatever the kind of environment or the kind of people, leaders who live in the country. Prior to explain more on the aim of my piece of writing;

I would like to begin with the quotation about hope for my well-regarded readers to thick critically on the theme of my writing. The quotation is, “the best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope and you will fill yourself with hope’’—Barack Obama. Hope gives life meaning and this why is it always possible for some of our people who believe in hope make good things happen. However, I would love to see our leaders initiating good policies that will make our country regain trust. Doing whatever we wanted to do with confidence, expectation and optimism will lead to self reformation and to reformation of country policies.

The message is to first reform our selves before we think of reforming the country, it will be very difficult for us to achieve our target. Policies are the instruments that help us to achieve our goals. If our goal is to reform our country and it is really our main target now as South Sudanese we should think deeply as to why we are not doing anything new to our people and why are people are not always happy. We can not be only keeping promising ourselves. Hope is a thought that what is said by our policy makers is going to happen.

According to my understanding of the above quotation about hope, it is the leaders who promise the country citizens and citizens wait for good things to happen. But if I personalized the quotation, then it will mean different things. The level that our country is at now is very difficult for individual to initial personal development. The only thing we can rely on is hope; let us base our hope on the views of being one day we will have sustainable peace knowing that we can overcome our difficulties by sitting together with one heart and perceptions as people of South Sudan and think deeply Of the best answers.

I want the people of South Sudan to always expect peace, hope for peace, and pray for peace to come to South Sudan. If we expect the worse we will get the worse and if we expect the best we will get best, for this reason, let us expect the best to happen and will the best will happen to us all as the people of this country. The problems we are facing at the moment are man made problems, man made problems are solve by man, The solution to our problems is within us. “Man invents war. Man discovers peace. He invents war from without. He discovers peace from within’’—Sri Chinmoy. If man discovers peace from within, then why does it take time for us to reconcile our differences, our differences are only political differences,

I am requesting our political leaders to have political will and be aware that that they are the solution to our problems and if they are well aware that they are the solution, South Sudanese within few days will enjoy relative peace. “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the one we have being waiting for. We are the change that we seek’’—- Barack Obama.

If we are the change we have been waiting for, let us start reforming our personal believe, thinking and wishes to positive believing. Timing is now, international community will not change our thinking and our attitudes towards our country.it us who can discover our attitudes, there is always the next road ahead, if we have lost our direction, there is another safe road ahead of us that we can use to reach our expected destination. Integrity does not develop itself alone it is the people who developed integrity. South Sudan integrity can not and will never be developed by the neighboring countries or the western World, simply because we did not help in developing their integrity.

When we came to Juba in 2005, the people who were in Juba were having their own eating practices, what they do when they are serving customers in their restaurant., they use to put bread on the table and take back the plate and you left with only bread on the table and your fried chicken/soup in the plate. And because it was against our will the issue was solved cooperatively without differences simply because it our collective obligation, it was not resolved by our leaders, there was no meet call, we are now at peace with restaurant owners. The message to our people is that there are other things we can solve as ordinary citizen but I know our problem, our problem is our policies makers that are suppose to show us the way by providing our basic services, for example security. After that our mind will open and we will be helping the government in doing other activities, what we need from the government is only security so that we have peace within ourselves. If those who have decided to kill travellers realized that they are not doing the right thing, they will stop killing innocent citizens. Let us hope they will stop. This is where I involve the government to strategies.

In conclusion remarks, I would like to conclude by the quotation about determination and the analysis will remain with you the readers and me the author.

“People who lack clarity, courage and determination to follow their dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. When you change for the better the people around you will be inspired to change also—-but only after doing their best you stop”———- Steve Maraboli
