I weep for Nigeria.

Just the other day news flashed from up north another senseless killing.   hundreds of people Men women old and young shattered dreams laid lifeless on the ground Oh when will all these dark doom be over The nation was thrown into mourning yet again.   Our government, seem unperturbed!

Random Musings.#86.

Who is in control? As a mother of a little baby, I have noticed that just like his older brothers, my little prince is a strong-willed child. Over the weekend I had to attend a function where I was to perform. I didn’t have any of my volunteer drivers around- I don’t like driving myself…
