02 Mar Celebrating Ghana Together – 2015/03/02
This year, we celebrate 58 years of independence! On March 6, 1957, it was declared that the former Gold Coast colony would become the independent state of Ghana. After which, Ghana remained a Commonwealth country until a national referendum in 1960 declared Ghana a republic.
We live in beautiful country. Once in a while, we need to sit back and reflect as a reminder of how fortunate we are to be in Ghana. We need to appreciate what we have, because it is for us and no one else. Truth be told, the grass isn’t necessarily greener on the other side.
With that in mind, let us consider some of the ways we are blessed as a nation. Our national anthem has excellent lyrics, which should shape how we act as Ghanaians, both individually and as a nation.
God bless our homeland, Ghana, and make our nation great and strong
Yes, Ghana is indeed a blessed country that is rich in natural resources, and while we are well known for our gold and cocoa exports, there’s so much more to our riches, including silver and timber. Our resources make us strong, and we must ensure that we benefit from their usage and sale.
Bold to defend forever, the cause of Freedom and of Right
With our extensive history, we have much to celebrate as a nation, seeing how far we have progressed. As we step into another year as an independent nation, we need to continue to embrace our nation-hood. How can we do this? We need to support and cherish Ghana, our people and our brands. GTP is proudly Ghanaian company, designing prints that match the bright and colourful Ghanaian attitude.
Fill our hearts with true humility, make us cherish fearless honesty
Now, let’s look at our people – we are a jovial, fun-loving, happy country. We are known around the world for our hospitality and our friendliness. Different tribes, different religion, different outlooks, yet we remain united. Let’s hold on dearly to the things that make us one.
And help us to resist oppressors’ rule, with all our will and might for evermore
Considering all that’s going on in the world today, we need to be continuously thankful for the overwhelming peace we have in Ghana. Wars, natural disasters, deadly viruses and so much more are looming all around us, but we continue to be free from all of them.
May God Continue to Bless Ghana
