I don’t want to believe that anything goes, in the attack on certain figures, as is the case of the Minister of Health, Silvia Lutucuta, whose name is being vilified on social networks for an audio that proves nothing. Even if I tried!
I am not “looking” at Minister Silvia, but at her mother, aunt, grandmother. It is not part of our customs to disrespect the mothers of others, on the contrary, we invented the saying that says: Mother of the other is your mother.
We always treat our older neighbors as aunts, not because of their blood connection, but out of respect, because they are the mothers of our friends and because of their age. I do not accept the justification that “times change”, “globalization” or the “age of social networks”, no! Social networks don’t make us less educated, less sensitive, they don’t have that power over us.
We all want to have views, we all want to have news for whatsaap groups, but we don’t need to play so low, we don’t need to lose our values, we don’t need to offend and much less tarnish the image of others.
Don’t talk “like that” about the mother of others, don’t lose your posture, not everything goes. Don’t share, don’t help tarnish the image of an Angolan mother, put yourself in the place of a son before sharing or inventing anything about you.
