July 1st Independence Day message from Somalia President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud:  "Somalia is now 55 years old, but practically and literary we can say we are 30 years old because the past 25 years was not good for the country’s independence. My message to my people and to the world is that we are engaged and vigorously working to bring back the Somali people back to Somalia to rebuild this country. We believe that it is the Somalis themselves who can rebuild this country. The world can play a supportive role, which they have played. I am very glad that the international community as a whole has played a major role here in Somalia. Of course millions of people have been saved because of international support and intervention and up till now the international community is still here to support Somalia. But that is their role, supportive role, and the real role of rebuilding this country, lies on the shoulders of Somalis. I would like to tell my fellow countrymen and women, those who are outside Somalia, to come back and work here. Yes the environment is difficult, there are a lot of challenges on the ground, but even then, this is the only country that we have. Those who are inside Somalia including the politicians, I say we don’t have the leisure to play around, we need to focus on priority areas, priority legislations, priority projects and programmes that would bring back Somalia. We should not waste our time with issues and cultures and practices that we have used in the past 25 years and that has put Somalia where it is today. We need to be very tolerant, we need to be very hard working, we need to be very open to dialogue and we need to be forgiving. Only then can we build the Somalia we dream about
