Hail to the Queen of Truth (more…)

Hail to the Queen of Truth

Slow, steady and determined

She moon walks to the pinnacle of power
power with grace
Style with purpose.
Never waiver says
The queen of Truth
I will be there for you sisters
I will walk with you brothers
Together we will march
Towards the tower of justice
My people
We have a rendezvous with victory
Says the tall queen of Justice

The elegant, Ms. Birtukan Mideksa, the voice of the silent Ethiopian people was celebrated in Boston, Ma, on December 26th, 2009, at a specious Italian club, in Arlington, MA. UDJ’s (Andinet) Association of Ethiopian Women organized the spectacular event.

The master of ceremony was the diligent and quiet Mr. Aklog Limeneh, who introduced the distinguished Mr. Williams Brownsberger, a state house representative of Ma.

Mr. Aklog paid tribute to Mr. Brown Berger’s commendable role in contributing to the release of Kinijit’s leaders, when the Ethiopian government imprisoned them. He declared that ones again, he and his colleagues would play a role in securing the release of Mrs. Birtukan Mideksa. The members of his family were visibly impressed by the hospitality of the Ethiopian people. The family was touched by Birtukan’s brilliant speech, the delicious Ethiopian dinner, and highly impressed by Mrs. Bethlehem’s classical Ethiopian songs. I was very proud to translate the songs to the family, and also lead them to the dance floor, upon their request.

Mr. Brownsberger raised his hands and said Birtukan Tifeta in Amharic. An adoring crowd cheered his melodic Amharic.

An impressive crowd of over three hundred people attended the event. The guests were serious and determined to release Mrs. Birtukan by any means necessary.

Abugida, the Ethiopian Diaspora’s, leading television program, covered the event with a brilliant play, young Ethiopian children’s inspiring program, and the energetic poet, Mrs. Debri, who managed to raise $800, through a successful auction of a traditional Ethiopian dress.

This extraordinary event is part of an ongoing fund raising effort, with spectacular results that UDJ is organizing around the world.

Ethiopians from all walks of life are wrapping themselves with Ethiopianity and Unity and determined to release the chairwoman of UDJ to the sunlight of justice and provide the Ethiopian people with an alternative national party ready to end Ethnocentricity and replace it with Ethiopianity, so that the Ethiopian people could choose a party that represents them, stands for them, and vows to end famines, cycles of poverty, armed with a new economic policy that would fight for the poor, the vulnerable, the alienated, and organize a party for all Ethiopians and by all Ethiopians.

    Birtu_Can is a Symbol of the atrocities and persecution on Ethiopians by the apartheid regime in Ethiopia!

    TO GUEST:

    You questioed professor Tewodros Kiros why he used his acadamic title (PhD) in addressing a news-like reporting and his appreciation to the imprisiond young lawyer – Birtukan Medeksa. I can give you an answer to you even though I am not HE nor he had given me permission to speak on behalf. You see, people are different in their person be it in their character, belief, whether that means religion or not, maturity through ages or acadamic standing. We all have our limit of measure according to established custom, tradation and day to day practice in life. Through the process of life, we achieved somthing or not achieved at all. Those who who do not acheived any thing at all will not be recognized by society in such standards of social status. For this reason they have no frame of reference to claim any honorable status as such. Others who have such opportunity are inclined to use it in conjunction to their given name. This is true even in the world of religious school. You heared the priest who introduced themself with their title, such as Kes (or priest) Paul, Apostle Paul or even St. Paul. The same is true for the acadamic circle. One who is a Medical profession may call himself Dr. Asrat Dr. Taye, Dr. Bedemariam few of the example we know from Ethiopia. To answer you question why it was necessary to ues his title PhD is to (1) indicate that he is member of the learned society with the profession of teaching, (2) The title was the fruit of his hard work that distingushed him from the rest of the society that he live with.

    I have put the above statement not because I didn’t believe no one knows what PhD or its use in addressing issues or introducing self to the audience but I found the guest’s questioning as insulting and offensive. This is so common on those who are cynic in their very nature because their thinking is more attracted to the moral degradation and not motivation. And those who practice are those who are not suceeded in life. I can tell you where you can find those stupids in our community. Although ALL ARE NOT INCLUDED, those left behind (unsucceed ones) are found in parking lot, small scale business sectore and taxi drivers who are not lucky enough to be respect by themselve and respect by others.

    Mr. Guest: Why you singled out Professor T. Kiros? Is that because he is a Tigrian??? Why dont you address the same question when others address same title like Alemayehu Gebremariam and the rest PhDs?? What a prejeduce!!. I have respect for Professor Tewodros Kiros because he is one of the few Tigri Ethiopian who want to be with his Ethiopian people while others care less and even questioning why he use his title (PhD).

    May I thank Gonderew, for defending my case. It appears as if, I am born to be abused, no matter what I write and try to do for my beloved Ethiopia. Luckily, the Transcendent is immeasurably kind to me, and that is enough. I live to serve the Lord in the best way I know until he recalls me to his peaceful place, where there is no pain, but eternal joy.

    To Prof. Tewodros Kiros:

    I acknowledge your appriciation to my suppoert of your case. I have defended you earlier when another person questioned your “Ethiopianness” but that time I used a different pen name. I have seen you for the first time at Birtukans’s fund raising events on December 26, 2009. Nice to see you back then and I hope I will meet you in person both to know you further and to get information about the seven books that you authored. Happy New year.
