    What do we stand to gain? =
    I was born on this land, i will die on this land. Land that was in existence before me why should I fight over it. I know land is owned by people in possession at that moment, but when one comes to drag ur land with you let it be, lands knows there owner, they see you, you communicate with them each time you went to cultivate so don’t be victim of land disputes. Lands have language they understand, talk to them with the language they understand. Fighting and killing one for over a land is act of ignorance….
