“Freedom is not something that one people can bestow on another as a gift. Thy claim it as their own and none can keep it from them.”
— President Kwame Nkrumah
Continuing last week's theme of taking ownership over what happens in our lives, Nkrumah urges us to assert our rights. Reminds me of a mantra I once created for myself: my standards will only be met when I assert them.
