Shoot at Millions
The reality dawned on me the very day a young cousin of mine was being buried. While people cried that she’s no more, I wondered if they really understood the implication of her demise at such a young age. Is she the only one that would no longer feature here by reason of her demise? She had just passed at her prime as a young teenager. During the walk taken round in final view of her lifeless body, it suddenly dawned on me that what laid in that casket was more than a dead body of a young lady. It was a whole generation, one on whom the hope of millions hung. At that point, I wept so bitterly having realise there’re millions whose expectations have been dashed as a result of her sudden demise. Laid in that casket was a whole generation that had been denied of expression in this part of the universe, and more that would live without her contributions to this planet. The crowd that gathered at her funeral echoed this same fact. The incident that led to that untimely death was obviously a shoot at those millions. Not many are aware their life affects millions to consciously live it in the positive light always. This is a wake-up call!
