Happy (belated) Independence day to all of our readers from Burkina Faso!
August 5th, 1960 (sorry this is a day late)
“I would like to leave behind me the conviction that if we maintain a certain amount of caution and organization we deserve victory[….] You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from nonconformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. […] We must dare to invent the future.”
- Thomas Isidore Noel Sankara
