Celebrating Kenya

Today is Madaraka Day. The golden anniversary of Kenya’s independence.

Today we celebrate

+ the remarkable resilience and resourcefulness of the Kenyan people.

+ the treasure of our natural resources; forests, mountains, wildlife, ocean, savannah, lakes.

+ every man, woman and child in every village, city and town across this great land.

+ the memory of those that went before us – likewise acknowledging the presence of heroes present – they that tirelessly and selflessly fought to recover and restore our nation’s freedom, our people’s dignity, our pride and heritage.

We lift up the Lord of all creation in thanksgiving. May all of Kenya continue to flourish, thrive, and enjoy the peace and prosperity that He’s laid up for us all.

Proudly Kenyan.
