July 26, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The souls of the 20,000 innocents civilians evilly killed by the Juba regime should weighted more than personal interests, if we are serious about radical changes in South Sudan. It’s too soon to forget or simply neglect the sacrifices of our martyrs. The people that stood up against the ostracism of the few minorities, the very the same people who said enough is enough and took up army to liberate our nation from the internal oppressors. The torch is ours to hold it up higher than never before in the virgin history of our nation. It’s time to reconquer and overtake our power back.

United, we stand strong and invincible, because positivism will help us shape and strengthen our values toward prosperity. Hesitation caused great revolutions to collapse, but with profound commitment and the sad memories of the December 15 genocide. Our youth league can’t allow such obstructions, hinder us reach our collective aims.

In the midst of any crisis our peers must understand the efforts needed to achieve greatness, an essential leadership peculiarity dearth within our society. For generations our leaders have failed to delivered and capitalized noticeably changes which would have improved our lives, actions regrettable by many until these days. But this generation should live by example and avoid such mistakes to repeats again; these times require changes for better concurrence. It’s our golden opportunity to expose to our leaders that the ground has shifted beneath, tougher and more challenging epochs which required unity currently reign.

The ideal of justice, liberty, and prosperity to all the citizens of this great nation, must be founded under a solidify grass roots. SPLM/IO ad-hoc is to transforms the South Sudanese’s political itinerary toward mutual opulence, where every citizen for separate has the opportunity to contribute in the nation building process. The greatest leaders built confidence, and attained the trusts of their followers by setting positive example. Their perseverance, tenacity, and determination to conquest the impossible allowed them to gain such reputation. We are living in an era where the collaboration of knowledge pays huge dividends, but must importantly the joint understanding endeavor forever.

For quite sometimes the leading elites diverged in ideas, and always rushed to master their differences utilizing the most remote method of conflict resolutions means, the violence or simply opting to dissolve courses. These behaviors must stop; we should recourse to the dialogue, and others sophisticated approaches. Today we are failing our ideals, by not carrying the torch of hope, omitting our potential to excel with own merits.  

Call to Reflections

The severities of any war are suffered by the youth, for centuries their voices have been deprived under the umbrella of the elders, and leaders. Until these days our opinions of engendering innovative ideas, to thrive our civilization toward prosperity weren’t considered vital or necessary. It’s a crucial time in history for us to start taking notes and get involve in putting effective and transformative doctrines in front of our leaders.

Despite the caliber and complexity of these issues, the participation of the youth is essential. Our advice may provide vital solutions, and obviously reconcile the involved parties in moment of high tensions.

Let all unite our voices and energies to call upon our leaders within the SPLM/IO to sorts out this insignificants differences in a conciliatory manner. We came from a very far distance to lay down our army, just miles from the finish lane. It’s now our golden time for redemption, prioritization and certainly, isolate ourselves from the temptation to fall back in the hole of wretchedness.

As we mourn the deaths of our brothers and sisters, comradeship must outshine our individual interests. Their legacy can’t just perish abortively; unquestionably we must continue fighting to bring their perpetrators to justices. And the only way for us to triumph in this war of reasonableness, is by bonding our efforts.

“Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If Ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders field” By John McCrae

These martyrs doubtlessly are remembered as the greatest souls that our nation has ever sacrificed. Let utilize all the necessary tools to call upon our leaders, brother’s fathers and elders to safe our inheritance and secure a bright future to the next generation of South Sudanese, who shouldn’t agonize our fate.
