Many times, this very weird thought crossed my mind and I can help but ponder over it. What would it have been had I been born in the slave trade era?
Would I have been a slave sold to a plantation farm, would I have been spared and stayed back in the village while everyone I keep was carted off?
Then I think of what would have eventually become of me and I can’t help but be thankful that I wasn’t there then. But is this time we live in, really a time of freedom?
