    Great achievement, Congrats to Oromos and Somlians!

    Just wonder, where is Abebe Belew? He must be on vacation back in ethiopia, otherwise he could have raised the question” why not abyssinian street instead of Oromo Street”?

    Those Dum question!

    This is one of the great achievements of the year.It adds an immense grace to our value and the inspiration we have as a people.

    Dear members of the oromo community,the leaders and other species of the wonderful human beings who worked to this end should be proud in letting the job well done.It is part of an international movement for recognition of culture and celebration of diversity in the heart of The United States Of America.The people and the leaders who have done to this end would be held high in the movement of the oromo people’s struggle for justice ,equality,tolerance around the world and in particular Horn Of Africa.Our struggle is part of the international struggle to make the wold a better place.for people to live in peace , tranquility and dignity in a unity despite diversity and love despite difference.It is a paradigm shift in the face of oromo political struggle.It adds a grace to our imagination and inspiration as one of the ancient people who are rising up from the deep and long slumber.It adds value to who we are and what we are destined to accomplish.

    Thank you the community,the leaders and all who helped to this end.
