When we do our workshop for “This is my story…” in Africa we are consistently approached by youth with the statement of “We want to be just like the US.” Our gut reaction is, No you don’t. The current US may not be the America they might think it is. The powerful Christian values within its revolutionary constitution designed to crush colonialism gave birth to a new land for families in a new democracy That idea was replaced by a modern concept of “Consumerism” in the mid fifties. The…
