A lot of people upon hearing about this initiative have wondered, “then what?”. So Kenyans from all walks of life come together and sing the national anthem at the same time in one united voice. “Then what?” What is the larger project? What is the big point, what are we supposed to achieve?
Some have gone so far as to say, if there is no grand programme after we have sung, then why bother?
The national anthem is about all of us working together, it is about unity – and each one of us doing their bit to support the collective.
When people come together in an activity and do it in unison, the sense of brotherhood and the invigoration of their spirit, the sense that you are fighting this battle to survive, win in life with others; when we know and feel that we have something in common, that IN FACT holds us together and that our differences are mere details, then Unity is Enough.
This movement has only one purpose. To activate our kinship, our sense of togetherness, our recognition that we are united in purpose and vision. When you and I have taken time to reflect on what unity means to you personally and what role you personally have to play in your own surrounding to foster unity, you will know what should be done after the singing.
You will know what next.
Unity is enough because after we know we are together, we will be energised to work harder for what we believe in. We will see which part of Kenya’s problems we want to sort out and together, we will assist each other to improve our lives.
Because Unity as the whole point, is enough of a reason to stand at attention, next to a stranger, and sing the National Anthem.
The big point? Unite and Sing. What then after we have sung? Its up to you to decide.
