Dear style readers, For the most part, we cover things issues on fashion and style, but I think it’s time we pause and address larger things currently going on in Nigeria.
Okay, I have been quiet on social media about the 276 girls that were kidnapped from their school by the terrorist group called Boko Haram. This is because I have really been traumatized by all of this, especially when I think of what the girls are going through right now. I needed to take a pause to reflect on this very serious issue because it affects me deeply.
I ask myself several questions? What if my child, sister, or niece was affected? What has the world turned into? I have seen the video of the Boko Haram leader and I really think terrorism has to stop. Why do innocent people always have to suffer for peoples stupid beliefs? Why kidnap young girls to use them as sex slaves? Why kill people to prove a point? Why do you consider someone’s personal values a sin? I guess there are endless responses to these questions.
However in my opinion, terror is evil as far as am concerned; our leaders should rise up against terrorism to stop this whole debacle that has befallen our nation Nigeria. Lots of people from around the world have taken to social media to show support for the rescue effort with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls
Our country is in the dark on this issue so let’s wake up to the situation by playing our own role. Thus as a girl, a woman and a mother, I therefore join everyone who has supported this initiative to make this call to the government and everyone out there to say please; #BringBackOurGirls.
