We, as people from different ethnic groups of Ethiopia have more in common to unite us than do we have differences that divide us. If we concentrate on that commonality, we could free our people and our country. Our history indicates that we have been isolated from each other, fighting the same opponent, but doing it alone. We have been doing it haphazardly and mostly ineffectually, from many various fronts. The evidence of our frustration is in the many years of our struggle. As long as we fight our battles alone, we will not win the war. Instead, we are not only prolonging the suffering of our people, but we are actually contributing to the destruction of everyone who lives in Ethiopia. We know that what the ethnic apartheid regime of the TPLF/EPRDF fears the most is unity within our ethnic groups and unity among differing ethnic groups. Think what could happen if the Oromo, being the majority ethnic group, became united as one so they could speak with one voice. Think about what could happen if the Oromos joined with other ethnic groups! Our victory could be more certain than ever. Think what it will take to sustain that victory for the future generations who we would want to live in peace and harmony with their neighbors. To win such a battle for lasting justice, we have to first think differently (by putting our humanity before ethnicity or anything)and then do things differently. This is what I have been talking about. May God bless ALL the beautiful people of Ethiopia and enable them to become soldiers of love, justice, equality, peace and unity!
