I am inspired most by their refusal to bow down.
I consider their tenacity an admirable quality.
They are ancient civilizations that have seen conquerors come and conquerors go. They have within their "historical DNA" a spirit and a unity that I am in awe of.
I wonder sometimes to myself what lessons black America could learn from a people who refuse to be enslaved. Who would rather be eradicated altogether than be enslaved.
Middle Eastern people and their unity give the phrase "Freedom or Death" a very real connotation.
I am humbled.
