You are Special!

Do you know that being different from others means that you are special? Being taller, shorter, and fatter or thinner than most of your friends and classmates, being physically challenged or being an Albino should not give you sleepless nights or make you unhappy because you are unique. The way God created you is what makes you who you are. What if everyone you knew looked, talked, dressed, and acted the same way you do? Then life will be boring! It is what you have that others do not have that makes you a unique person.

PARENTING

My experience of the way parents train their children when I had opportunity of travelling to the United State of America was totally different from the way Africans train their children. I was always annoyed with my host when his small boy of six years will do something wrong and instead of spanking him or warning him in a serious manner, he would just call him and pamper him and tell him it is not good and will later show him the right thing to do. In my eyes, it is sparing the rod and spoiling the child. My host noticed my reaction and he called me to explain that, it is how they train their children and they are better for it. It didn’t go down with me but I had to just adjust and get along.

The rainbow after the storm

I was having a little meltdown the other day when I saw this picture of an actual rainbow taken after a storm. It was breathtaking and so beautiful and more than just aesthetics to my eyes. It reminded me that there’s always a rainbow at the end of a storm and the mere thought of this set a cushion to my troubled mind. It’s okay to have little meltdowns every now and then because they serve to prepare us for the joys which we will experience when the rainbow finally appears; and it most certainly does.

Hope on the Day of the African Child

Nigerian children have been the worst hit in Boko Haram insurgency in the northern part of the country since 2009. Children, supposed to be in school are out for fear of being killed by this sect, and parents who have been lucky to be alive keep their children at home for this same reason. The trend continues as children who were better off at the Internally Displaced People’s Camp where volunteers taught them, stay at home now for the fear of being attacked.
According to Human Rights Watch report, one million children in Nigeria have little or no access to schools as a result of Boko Haram’s attacks, robbing an entire generation of children in the North East of their education.
