No need to add to the video below, sometimes spoken words are needed more than written ones. Just know that the moral of this post is simple: fighting hatred with hatred is counterproductive, fighting fire with fire only ends up with two burn victims. Instead of protesting and marching, extend a hand of friendship and be love instead. If you agree with the message of the video below, use social media and spread the word using #IntentionalLove
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.
