R.I.P. Hamim Lubega

This gentleman carried himself with an exemplary spirit of humility and he is going to be greatly missed.

Away from the track, he was the quiet one (within the parameters of the ‘quiet’ Mile End’s athletes produce!). He had a constantly calm and collected tone and it reflected on his performances on the track. He was smart beyond his years, with a respect for his elders and a love for his bredren.

I’m gonna miss the banter but, most of all, I’m going to miss the competition. It’s been a while since we raced and it is a shame our next race won’t take place in this life. Battles over the 200m and 400m will be sorely missed, as well as the gym work.

He is in a better place now but this world has definitely lost a shining light. Even close to the end, his concern was with the welfare of others. That’s just remarkable love, to be frank. But, then, that was him since I first met him.

I'm extremely opinionated and have lead somewhat of a colourful life, that I'd like to share with others. I believe that sharing our experiences and thoughts can help others no end, as we live this life of social media that has caused us to become islands, often suffering in silence, while we put on the front of the good life. I'm also an avid sportsman, track athlete and am headed towards a purpose of teaching the Word of God. Always something to say, always something to share, always eager to hear from others.
