''Always in our hearts. Rest In Peace, Christian Atsu.''
''Thoughtful of Hatayspor to honour Christian Atsu and all lost souls in their first game since the harrowing earthquake in February.''
Is it worth it to be a patriotic citizen in Ghana? Christian Atsu, with all love, played for the Ghana Black Stars. In his own small way, he lifted the flag of Ghana; even his death was waving the flag for this honourable country. A country like Ghana up to date has not been able to do anything to honour this lovable soul. It only has to take Hatayaspor (His club team) to honour and respect his legacy. I think we can do well as a country. Things like this are what will energize patriotism!
