Over the past couple of weeks my mind has been on Ghana. Not just because I miss eating waakye, and the sun is finally popping up in these parts, but because in about three days, Ghana is gonna mark it’s 55th year of independence. Sure, there might be nothing especially groundbreaking about it, and unlike Ghana @ 50, it seems to be relatively quiet this time around, but I think the time is ripe for us to assess ourselves, both individually and collectively, with regards to Ghana and our future. Simply put, what legacy are we creating (if any) and how do we hope to impact future generations of Ghanaians? I share my thoughts through this two-part video blog, and invite you to share yours as well in the lead up to Ghana @ 55 and beyond. Happy (early) Independence Day!
