POV

There was once a man who said, "I disapprove of what you say but, I will defend to death your right to say it." Strong statement isn't it?

Everyday we meet different people in life and each of them either regurgitate someone's opinion or have one of their own. These days its rare to find someone who has original opinions because of mass media and their influence so I would think that coming across an individual who actually possesses originality our hearts would skip a beat. Unfortunately I met people who would rather that everyone have a uniformity of thought.

As I sat and argued against this disillusionment, I thought to myself how misunderstood uniqueness is. If I play the devil's advocate I certainly will be prone to be shoved to the side and painted as a sore on society. A tear in the wall of conformist and an abhorrance to look at. If everyone thought and did the same thing we wouldn't have Graham Bell,Newton, Martin Luther King Jr. I mean come on these people thrived on their uniqueness and held on to it even though at times they were faced with adversity.

So here is to you Ngonge..........to your misunderstood genius and your corky thought processes. I applaud your uniqueness and am glad of your existence because you go against the grain of normalcy. Cheers Mate!

Hello, I was searching for information on wifi directory to assist me with my wifi directory site/blog.

I came across your blog in the process and thought it was interesting. I'm going to bookmark you, and keep up the good work. :-)

I can not possibly comment on your lines there.

NG, I salute you too.. although I wouldnt be quick to put u in the same category as Newton YET (perhaps when you die.. you know how its much easier to exaggerate the goodness and ingenuity of people posthumously).

Keep being yourself and seeing the funnier side :-)
