White hair

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. 
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" 
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

Africa2063-the_future_we_want_for_africa

Africa Day celebrates the day when the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), the precursor to the African Union (AU), was formed in 1963.

Africa Day celebrations acknowledge the progress that we, as Africans, have made, while reflecting upon the common challenges we face in a global environment.

In 2014, we are celebrating the 51st anniversary of the African Union with the theme “Agenda 2063: the future we want”.
 
The African Union Commission (AUC) on 25 May, 2014 celebrated Africa Day. The ceremony, held at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, included a variety of activities marking the year-long closing events of the 50th OAU/AU anniversary.

Events included sports tournaments, a marathon dubbed the ‘Great Run Africa”; the 10th Anniversary of the Peace and Security Council of the AU; the “Africa Re-imagination Creative Hub (ARCH) exhibition; and an AU Staff buffet luncheon consisting of different African foods which was open to all members of the public who came in their numbers to witness the Africa Day celebrations.

Aiming to encourage discussion among all stakeholders, “Agenda 2063” is an approach to how the continent should effectively learn from the lessons of the past, build on the progress now underway and strategically exploit all possible opportunities available in the immediate and medium term, so as to ensure positive socioeconomic transformation within the next 50 years.
