MEN OF FREEDOM…..
THE ROAD TO INDEPENDENCE
For many people, Independence Day is about parades, politics and most importantly….the holiday we enjoy staying out of school and work. But for us at Debonair Afrik, independence will always be a day of tribute to the men [and women] who deserve our admiration for their unflinching valor and willingness to give it all up for the very sake of freedom.
The greatest heroes in life are those that never give up on someone. They stick it out and make it work. They sacrifice things in their life, in order to help others grow. They give up what they want because someone needs it more. They work hard and overcome adversity. They fail for a moment, but get back up on their feet to show others they don’t have to stay down. They show their loved ones that love is not “proved” by conformity. They teach others that having a voice is a sign of courage, and they will not stay silent to make people feel comfortable. They are fearless and will do whatever it takes to bring about the greatness in the ones they love because doing so brings them peace.
Most of these men were of means who had a lot to lose but still persevered to help us get to where we are today as a nation. So today, we will dote on 6 of their characteristic traits that make them the men we so much admire.

Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
