Hey all. How school dey go for una? Anyways enough of the pleasantries lol and on to what has been bothering me.This Haitian thing has been on my mind especially the other night when Mr Larry King had all them celebrities like Jlo, diddy, Ben stiller etc on his show. They were all there raising money for the Haitian victims. That's all good and all but it got me thinking sha, the
Monday before the Tuesday of the earthquake everybody and their mama knew that Haiti was an improverished nation abi? Did many people donate as they are donatin now? There were 10000 humanitarian aid agencies in Haiti before the earthquake. So what should the people living in Darfur and Congo etc do? They should all start praying for their own natural disaster. Because that is the formula now abi?The world will only come to your rescue if a natural disaster nearly wipes out every thing in your city. Why did it exactly have to take the death of 100k ppl before most ppl paid attention? Please anybody from Congo and darfur should start praying for natural disaster. I know somepeople will die from the natural disaster but sacrifices have to be made abi? The situation is not getting any better.
On to another point, I was glad to see my fellow Nigerians donating to the Haiti people. But I did not fail to realise that we were all willing to donate to Haiti but when it comes to donating to our humanitarian crisis in the North or any other part of Nigeria. Some of us will start to enquire whether we are donating to the Hausas? Or to the Igbos? To the christians? or to the Muslims? Why is that? Please as we are donating to Haiti let us remember the forgotten people in our own country as well.
I was watching south park last night and mehn those baggars are hella funny. They had an episode talking about whether handicapped people go to hell. Because the bible says that before one goes to heaven one
must confess their sins lol. Eric cartman a character in the show asked how ppl who can't will go to heaven if they can't confess their sins? Lwkmd when I heard that. On the issue of Holy Communion lol they
made jokes about that also, so it reminded me when I was in Faith Academy in Canaanland in Naija. Lol they gave us biscuit as the body of Christ and they gave us Apple La Casera as the blood of Christ. Thinking about it now I wonder why I never questioned it, seeing as anything can be used to represent the body/blood of Christ. Maybe I can eat dodo/chicken and have that represent the body of Christ and have my sweet orange juice represent the blood of Christ, is that not possible?
Sometimes ppl accuse other ppl of seekin Attention?And me I come dey wonder,na who no like attention?We all seek attention in some form or the other.Wen women do their hair they seek attention in the form of compliments.Wen u perform well @ work u seek attention in the form of promotion.Wen u buy a Lexus insted of a tokunbo u seek attention/ recognition 4rm ur friends no be so?
Mlk quote"A man who won't die for something is not fit 2 live".I struggled with this quote because I was wondering what if the something that is worth dying for is also worth killin for?Are there no good causes that
are worth killin for as well as dying for? Consider the Islamic extremists/terrorists, most of them are willing to die for whatever cause they are fighting for, but they also feel that that cause is worth killing for as well. And there have been times in history where killing innocent people was seen as worthy enough because the cause was that important.
