6th March; Wat Hup?

Ghana is celebrating 54 years of post independence and my nephew, AJ, is 10 years today. Hurray!!!
God bless you, Ghana.
God bless you, AJ (Pancakes next we meet) and I know there is cake with your name written on it. Enjoy.

Okay, so how many know there are three stanzas to Ghana's National Anthem, after all, most people know the words of the first stanza. Below are all the stanzas and in case you want to know the tune go to this link

The Ghanaian National Anthem
God bless our homeland Ghana,
And make our nation great and strong,
Bold to defend forever
The cause of Freedom and of Right.
Fill our hearts with true humility
Make us cherish fearless honesty,
And help us to resist oppressors' rule
With all our will and might forevermore.

Hail to thy name, O Ghana
To thee we make our solemn vow;
Steadfast to build together
A nation strong in Unity;
With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
In every need whate'er the call may be,
To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.

Raise high the flag of Ghana,
And one with Africa advance;
Black star of hope and honor,
To all who thirst for liberty;
Where the banner of Ghana freely flies,
May the way to freedom truly lie
Arise, arise, O sons of Ghanaland,
And under God march on forevermore.

I will be at the Ghana International Trade Fair at 4pm (GMT) spotting a black t-shirt with this design. Look out for me if you happen to be there. :)
