Happy Sunday people,
What’s your Sunday like? Church, family get together and sleep, or sleep, food and more sleep? Well in case you want to know what mine is like, Food, church, sleep and more sleep lol! I try to take every opportunity rest because the weeks ahead is not for the fainted hearted.
Anyway, the 3 series on the blog are gradually winding down and I hope you have been following through if not you can always catch up below. This is the last post in this series and I decided to end it with quotes from notable individuals and I hope they resonate with you like they did with me;
If you have missed any post from the other series you can catch up below;

Letter to my Unborn Child Series (NEW POST every FRIDAY)
Dear Single Youth Series (NEW POST every SUNDAY)
With no further ado here is the last post on this series from Datonelady herself.
Quotes every youth can resonate with;
“One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.” — Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Education should not be the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” — William Butler Yeats
“this is a time for bold measures. This is the country, and you are the generation.” — Bono
“Youth involvement has moved forward. It is no longer seen as a rebellious act, the way it was a few decades ago.” — Maureen A. Sedonaen
“Kids, I wish every mom and dad would make a speech to their teenagers and say, ‘Kids, be free, be whatever you are, do whatever you want to do, just as long as you don’t hurt anybody. And remember kids, I am your friend.’” — from the musical Hair.
And finally I found this protest slogan that can actually pass out for a saying/quote on freechild.org where I also got most of the quotes you see;
“Youth can be the leaders of tomorrow — if we procrastinate.
Ain’t no power like the power of youth cos the power of youth don’t stop!
If you must dream of the world you want to live in, dream out loud!
Youth are the solution — not the problem! Nothing about us without us is for us.”
