Editorial: South Sudanese Celebrate Christmas Filled with Sadness

December 24, 2014 (SSNA) — Today marks one of the saddest days in the history of the Republic of South Sudan. The people of South Sudanese around the world are celebrating the 2014 Christmas day with sadness as their county enters into second year of a man-made civil war.

Yes, the 15th of December 2013 is one of those dark days South Sudanese would not want to experience or see again.

Christmas, the widely celebrated holiday in South Sudan and around the world is now being marked in darkness.

The political immaturity shown by the leadership of the young nation forced South Sudanese to flee for their lives.

Now the people of South Sudan are dying from the ongoing worthless war, diseases, and hunger, not to mention the innocent children who their parents were massacred in cold blood in Juba last December.

The people of South Sudan and the international community know that the alleged coup which was used by President Salva Kiir and his allies to kill innocent people in Juba last December does not exist.

It is a decision any real Christian would not plan against his own people.

Our political leaders must understand that Christians forgive, especially in time of war.

This war will not last forever!
South Sudan must not be a failed state!
South Sudan shall prevail!

Let us not lose hope, let us celebrate this important Holiday with joy, and let us not lose our identity as one people who have sacrificed so much blood during our hard-won struggle against Khartoum.
