Something to Celebrate

Yesterday marked the 50th year of Ghana's independence. It truly is a cause for celebration; Ghana was the first sub-saharan nation to gain independence and have had a stable country since. There have been a few coups, however, none of them have been violent. And now, Ghana is stimulating the growth of its economy with and increase of international trade.

For me, it's a point of pride. During my semester there, I learned so much about the history and culture of the country, and I am happy for their progress. But I can't say I'm surprised; Ghana's people are some of the most hard-working, industrious and optimistic I've ever met.

You can read more about the celebration and look at photos from the days events.
