Everybody born free

My Vision of Peace
Everybody born free is the principal message of Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The vision for this piece was inspired by my discovery of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights translated into Krio - which is the most widely spoken language in Sierra Leone. My interpretation of Article 1 is my avowal of faith in sustainable peace in Sierra Leone.

Atikul Wan
Article 1

Ɛvribɔdi bɔn fri
All human beings are born free

nɔn wan nɔ pas in kɔmpin
and equal in dignity and rights.

Wi ɔl ebul fɔ tink
They are endowed with reason

wetin rayt
and conscience

ɛn rɔŋ pantap dat wi fɔ sabi
and should act towards one another

aw fɔ liv lɛk wan big famili.
in a spirit of brotherhood.

Padi dem, kontri, una ahl wey dey na Rom,
Mek una ohl kak una yeys.
Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears!

Go gɛt fridɔm, jɔstis ɛn pis in Salone.
Go get freedom, justice and peace in Sierra Leone.

Beautiful -- both the image and the words and the sentiment.
