I am very sad today. Not because anything happened to me, not because it’s been extremely cold in Washington, not even because we need more subscribers for Today News Africa to keep focusing on what is important to our readers, but because in our world today, up is down, and down is up. Hear me out first!
Let’s assume that I post a picture today from the World Bank Headquarters here in Washington DC, and say I am glad to announce that I have become the director of communication at the World Bank. My salary is $1 million per year! I have a big office and 100 people who report to me! I would likely get thousands of likes and many friend requests. People would likely see me as the symbol of success. They would congratulate me
Let’s now assume that I post the same picture from Today News Africa’s office and say, rejoice with me, I am the editor of Today News Africa in DC. I have a modest salary and only 5 people who report to me…..do not forget to subscribe to Today News Africa and also keep donating to Today News Africa by going to finance.todaynewsafrica.com/donation! I would likely have less likes and less friend requests.
