Thomas Sankara – The Upright Man

Thomas Sankara. What an inspiration! His life gives such a big hope that even bleakest circumstances and social decadence cannot stop good people from being born. His assassination also proves that we can’t take such providence for granted.

The cynic in me died just knowing what he spoke and what he did. Hear this-

“The revolution and women’s liberation go together. We do not talk of women’s emancipation as an act of charity or because of a surge of human compassion. It is a basic necessity for the triumph of the revolution. Women hold up the other half of the sky.”

Yes, I typically don’t watch full videos on facebook/youtube, but I fought against my impatience and viewed all 3 parts. And google and wikipedia only made me want to know more about “Thomas Sankara“.

I know it is risking social ostracization and it is also social crime to recommend/ask people to watch all the 3 parts of such a long video, in these times of short funny viral videos (I am myself guilty of morbid dependency on them..). But yes, go ahead, it may be worth the while…
