Respect in an average African man’s language is: “I’m older than you, with more but better experiences than you and should be in the position to decide sometimes for you.” . If this is not learned as one of the basics in the child’s upbringing, then such a child is not real.

A healthy balanced faith is such that it defines the individual in prayer, accesses the virtues of the divine through the accomplishment of works. With the instance of prayer and works, the individual sets the pace of building attitudinal and behavioural principles that measures the degree of good or/and evil in him or her.
The story of your life mixed with the successful and failures of
lifestyle, principles and philosophy
encounters, experiences and personality
defines the degree of healthy or unhealthy build of Quotes you build
I will never see myself broken.
Or try to make my life sullen.
With my strength to strike every fight that gives off the might of a bunteous harvest.
Will arise the spoils for the next challenge.
Never will I ever try to fail again
To fail to try without gain.
For deep within are the many but unknown intentions
That strives to bring its rewards and retention
Though time can’t cost to pay all that was lost
Its pains and toils gone to failures of good plans
So will praise when I arrive with hard groans
The completion of Priorities and Principles borne.
Life becomes Strange when your Successes are like Poems, Challenges turns to visions, Priorities chisels the pave of personal beliefs and Motivation forms the Lyrics. With Weaknesses beckoning to distort the path and Experiences describes the dramatist in you. Encounter pours out as Wine to build all of them knitted together.
Its quite Saddening that an army Nations dared and respected is left crumbling with lots of betrayals and Politics. Though they can’t reveal the course of their action, it would nevertheless take them a lot of energy and reform to save their image again.
One has never brought to the fore why heroes and heroine are quietly slipped by. Except when they have done a successful feat or are turned a new age , or returns mother earth that such profile would become public. After this, what next?
The fact that some heroes such as Alhaji Ado Bayero, Emir of Kano and Mrs Dora Akunyili, former D.G NAFDAC and Information Minister have ceased to breathe doesn’t grant the reason that after condolences and burial their stories will be gone with the wind. Such people need to be immortalised. But these great exemplary figures of the pas t as well present , dead or alive, where are they and why aren’t we Citizens of our time emulating their lives and principles? Why aren’t they the history that should be recorded in the museums of our Country? Why aren’t their generation as well as Government portray them as fabrics of every average Nigerian citizen?
Yet again to those whose lives have been cut short, why is the end of their story cut short by a never-ending police reports and series of unidentified killers or appalling reports suddenly swept under the carpet? Is it because they’re dead and gone equal the matter born but wrong? To those alive, they too have to think this coming. Who and why are the forces of evil prevailing and getting the upper hand of them than the successes they strive to defend? What seems to be the factor that always capture the unapproved qualities in them in their sojourn of the various fields they’re in: be it Academic, Political and their like? Why is it difficult to proclaim the achievements of good deeds of the people come across irrespective of tribe, language and States. For we are 37 states with the population of 160 million plus alive or dead, at least a person is good enough to extol another person’s patriotic deeds as well as terrorist capabilities across 365 or 366 days for a Country such as ours to forge on.
Finally, what are we living citizens doing to become a Country of envy. For it isn’t good to fold our arms while we have the machinery and weaponry to build a nation weaved with multi-dynamic features, tools and beings of Patriotism. The day one begins to be the agent of change to his environment will thus be the seed that will germinate across people who propagate civil discipline and morals, a vision they may undergo and achieve in days, decades, generations and. Century to come. But what one prays to ponder are: Can I be the one that would see to fruition the leadership and citizenry qualities, a fight of national unity just to be a Hero/heroine? Who are against me this journey of Patriotism and who is/are out there I can join forces and strength with to win this? How can I be a role model of an average Nigerian Citizen to live and be emulated by others.?
It goes on and on and on, Questions that may be answer only if we can be the Change this Country deserves irrespective of our weaknesses, failures , defeats and challenges, we shall move on and strive to be called the Nigerians who celebrate and promote Citizen turned Patriots.
Freedom is best defined as the ability to enjoy Risks as a measure of building successful yet highly determined goals, Priorities and Principle worthy to attribute as yours.
