on sharing colours

When I came across the shameful news of the raid on The Standard & KTN in Kenya last night (thx 4 sharing, IW), the first thing that came to my mind was 1933 and the infamous Book burning that destroyed a lot of intellectual property.
While some of you might consider this an overreaction to yesterday’s events, to me this just isn’t a government harassing the press and trying to cover up unpleasant stories, but a direct insult of telling people – the people – what to think.

We, the citizens of this world, are still intelligent enough to figure out what’s relevant and what’s not.

On a lighter note: did you know that the Kenyan and German flag share almost the same colours? I think that’s a nice coincidence :-)

  1. Waoh I love this write up and the analogy of “book burning”.Tis a shame that at this day and age, something similar is happening in our country. So unfortunate….so so heart wrenching ….

    Me likes the sharing of German and Kenyan colors:-). I wonder what the yellow stands for though?
