Today, May 15th, 2008, bloggers from around the world use one voice to call for human rights for all people. With regards to Nigeria and Nigerians, I cannot help but be reminded at this moment of the recent Brutish Airways incident in which 136 Nigerians were forcibly removed from a flight simply because they were Nigerian.
In a way, today is not about the Brutes or British officials and the deportation of Nigerians, in this case Augustine Eme. For me, this day is simply a day to continue to hope for a time when Nigerians will achieve the creation of the best Nigeria possible. If Nigerians can achieve this, which they can through commitment, determination and perseverance, then I believe that the entire world can achieve the best planet possible. My ideals may appear too lofty, but I have to believe that in this great world of infinite possibilities, the good will ultimately overcome the bad and we can overcome our perceived limitations.
Thus, I wish you a wonderful Thursday, and implore you to say a prayer for Myanmar (formerly called Burma) and China. And, finally, I leave you with the sounds of Asa's 'Jailer'.
