Reflections on our struggle

Reflections on our struggle

We hope to live long, all of us! In the ideas that we believe and the conviction that those following in our steps will carry them forward.
The idea of the future society is the most important and most noble idea that a revolutionary can harbour. Revolutionaries have always fought for the future. But to fight for the future doesn’t mean avoiding to do everyday what must be done for the present. The future is not built in the future; it is built on the threshold of what we do today.

And in this I draw some strength and inspiration from a Jimmy Cliff song – Struggling Man sang by some young people, PS22 Chorus:

Every man has a right to live
Love is all that we have to give
Together we struggle by your will to survive
And together we fight just to stay alive

Struggling man has got to move
Struggling man, no time to lose
I’m a struggling man
And I’ve got to move on

As the sun lights the day and the moon lights the night
Struggling man keeps reaching for the higher heights
So we plan for tomorrow as we live for today
Like a flower we bloom and then later fade away

Struggling man has got to move
Struggling man, no time to lose
I’m a struggling man
And I’ve got to move on…
