All sorrow shall pass, the persecuted shall in time rise, the ones who oppress the least shall be last and the ones at the last shall be praised. The paradigm will shift until then we do our part, our reward is not exaltation but doing the right thing.
God this I pray, for those who suffer give them comfort, for those who shiver in the cold give them shelter, for those who hunger give them nourishment. Give them wisdom that even if this world will not provide them with those three, they can find comfort, shelter and nourishment in the abiding love that is thee #amen
“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.” ~ Zephaniah 3:19
Teodrose was born in Ethiopia the same year Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by the communist Derg junta. The great grandson five generations removed of Atse (emperor) Tewodros Kassa II, the greatest king of Ethiopia, Teodrose is clearly influenced by the history and his connection to Ethiopia. Through his experiences growing up as first generation refugee in America, Teodrose writes poignantly about the universal experiences of joys, pains and a hope for a better tomorrow that binds all of humanity.
Teodrose has written extensively about the intersection of politics, economic policies, identity, and history. He is the author of "Serendipity's Trace" and newly released "Soul to Soil", two works that inspect the ways we are dissected as a people and shows how we can overcome injustice through the inclusive vision of togetherness.
