::Nigerian Terrorist?

The word came to me in the middle of Christmas dinner, dec 25th 2009 and it really inspired me to get back to blogging.

A Nigerian terrorist? This is very interesting, my question now is why now? why ever.

Letter to Mr Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab:

Dear Sir,
I send this to you not as my judging point of view, but as a concern of a group of people you represent (Nigerians). Sir, the news reports that you had a good education (Engineering Student, UCL class of 2008) and also that you come from a well to do home, (father being in top positions in banks) so now our question is why?

We as a country, as a nation, as a people have suffered numerous stereotypes.
Is it not bad enough that we represent our Green, White, Green despite the judging looks of being a 419-er (fraudster) is it not bad enough that we eat our traditional foods (eba, jollof rice, etc) and still condone being stereotyped as barbaric and backwards. Is it not bad enough that we walk through security checks and get scrutinized for what we hold in our hands? (our green passports) so my question to you sir, is why NOW? why EVER?

Sir, we as a nation have MANY struggles, we struggle for petrol, electricity, food (in some regions), safety and at most we struggle for PEACE. Why would you want to add terrorism to a nation that suffers so much already?
I love my people because despite the struggles we have we are still considered one of the happiest people on earth. Please do bare in mind that with this you have not only brought grief to a nation, but grief and MORE STRUGGLES to an already grieving nation.

Mr Abdulmutallab, we will not ask you why you did it, because you like everyone else in the world is entitled to your opinion, BUT remember that when you make certain choices, you open room for judgment, not just judgement of YOUR character or your belief, but also judgement of US as a people. Sir i do not appreciate that I have to fight off one stereotype or another due issues like this, BUT adding terror to the list is not what i anticipated for a New Year.

I know many people now are working on the Light Up Nigeria scheme, since when did we think it was ok to blow up America?
I know many people sing in the morning congregation "Arise O compatriots, Nigeria's call, obey" since when was it ok, to obey Al Qaeda's call?

Dear Sir, granted you made your decisions and will have to live with it, but I do not appreciate living with it too, because I do not believe in terror. I was NEVER brought up with thoughts of terrorism and will not associate myself or like to claim you as one of my own since you have decided to create a stereotype FOR YOURSELF which i REFUSE to be a part of. Are we disowning you as Nigerian? ha! Maybe, just maybe, because we would like to retain our one good stereotype of being "the world's happiest people" and being totally acceptive of you will jeopardize this one good thing we have going for us.

My people, I have sent out the word, now please please please...
We need to stay strong, have faith and NOT just pray but take action.
Because I know my people, after 49 years of independence, we do not have too much to show
besides expatriates and illegal immigrants who live like Kings and Queens in our own nation, just to name a few.
But please rid yourself of the ignorance and STOP passing the blame on one ethnicity or the other.
NOONE cares if he was Hausa, Yoruba Ibo, whatever, all they see is that he is NIGERIAN.
It is very ignorant to say "Oh at least he is not Ibo"
Do you think an average American who probably doesn't even know that Africa is NOT a country cares if he is Hausa or Yoruba? News flash ::: THEY DON'T
all they care about it that he is NIGERIAN.
I hope this will be an eye-opener for us all to see that if one ethnicity falters WE are all to blame because WE are Nigeria! So if an Ibo man is not doing his job, NO it is not because he is IBO, how about u do yours and QUIT complaining.

The point of this is ....
We cannot keep praying and sitting on our butts about our problems!
the bible clearly says : Prayers without works is DEAD
so if all you do is pray and hope, brothers and sister I AM SORRY FOR US!
we need to take action.
Thank you all who already are taking action towards a better Nigeria.

With Love and Grace...

...You will always be a part of me and I am part of you indefinitely....

She lives in fairy land with her thoughts, dreams, wishes and hopes.
Her imagination in fairy world, her reality in your world, with unhappiness and struggles.
Distance and time separate her destiny from her reality and her essence of being.
Inabilities and finance put her dreams on hold, but most of all. patience hurts her love and soul.

She sits in her confusion, waking up to it each and everyday, hoping for her rescue to come sooner.
Lost in her fairy world, she finds her escape, an escape that no one seems to understand.
She smiles, happy, knowing that one day this fairy world will become her reality..
Who needs this heart ache? who needs this pain?? who understands it but one..

Circles, circles, circles..
They say if you love something let it go, if it comes back then thats how you know..
How about never letting go and then it stays, because somethings just never come back.
She thinks letting you go is letting you go forever and she loves you too much to do that.
She wants you to stay, to stay with her forever, for you make up her fairy world,
you complete her empty spaces of unhappiness and confusion,
with you everything is alright, because you touch her heart just the way it deserves

...Words of a lover...

~* Emotions are not friends*~

I get angry, I get sad, I get mad, now I'm glad...
confused? infused? feeling used? words misconstrued!

Am I lonely? am I sad? Am I any word that can exist?
I don't like this feeling, this roller coaster ride
This high for the day, low for a while.
This Happy now, Sad then!
This thoughts in my head about where I am
Where I want to be, Where I could be and where I am going!

I think the deeper question to emotions is Who are you?
Who am I you ask?
I would answer but I don't know
what defines my being in existence?
My looks? my talent? my gifts? my friends? my family?
What? Who?
You would like to know?
So would I....

I am looking deeper within searching for that truth!
That true me that lies within...Who? What? Where?

Only in America drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
Only in America people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

Only in America banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Only in we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage

Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in America they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.


Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens
our skin?

Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

I like this one!!!

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Lol.. Hope u enjoyed it as much as I did! lol
