Crave for a more dignified Zambia

WITH golden Jubilee celebrations in the atmosphere yet behind us, it is not too early to think of seventy-fifth years of Zambia’s independence.

There is a saying that goes, “think in terms of a year, plant a seed; in terms of ten years plant a tree; in terms of hundred years, educate the people.” This saying encourages us to think a head therefore, we can already start thinking what should our country be like in the by the next celebration in 2039? In a world where most of the people want quick results longer projections seem to be a fallacy.
All things we do today contribute towards what the future would turn out to be. The difference between projected and unprojected future is that the first one change is defined, determined, coordinated and directed while the second one it is accidental. Accidental change is dangerous because no one can tell the state of possible result. Therefore it is important to define the long term change you want.
Many nations and individuals have made powerful projections but very few have seen the realization of what they had projected. This is because of what I normally say, “There is a difference between visualizing things and realizing the vision.” In as much as good policy direction and governance are vital, realization of projections requires combined efforts that begins with individual commitment to contribute towards the desired change. And I told them of the hand of my God that had been upon me for good, and also of the words that the king had spoken to me. And they said, “Let us rise up and build.” So they strengthened their hands for the good work.
The quotation is about projection is about the construction of the protective fence around the city of Jerusalem that served the interest of all its citizens. The re-building of the fence restored honour and dignity of the disgraced people. Zambia projection for the next remarkable jubilations should aim at enhancing the corporate and individual dignity. It will be shameful for Zambia to be worse than it is today yet very delightful to see a better Zambia then than now. Positive change requires our individual input.
