Malawian boy uses wind to power hope, electrify village.http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/africa/10/05/malawi.wind.boy/index.html
Read that article today on CNN.com. It is impressive but the real sticking point is the last two lines at the bottom.
"Kamkwamba is part of a generation of Africans who are not waiting for their governments or aid groups to come to their rescue, according to the author.
"They are seizing opportunities and technology, and finding solutions to their own problems," Mealer said. "One of the keys of his success is ... he's never wanted to rest on his laurels."
That simple excerpt is something that everyone around the world should be doing. It should not just come from a generation of Africans. It should be something that all people should be doing to make things better for themselves and the rest of the world.
If you want to make things better get out and do something don't wait for others to do it for you.
