It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die than to find those who are willing to endure the pain of patience.
Yes doing things for others voluntarily can change so many things for better. I always say, and will continue to say it; “I have hope for my country; Nigeria.” I believe the moment we suspend selfishness and employ selfless attitudes, things will be better; because that’s also part of doing things for others.
That’s our National Anthem that we kept reciting almost every day, in occasions or not. A times I use to ask myself; “What happens to this oath that we take over and over? Do we know the consequences of taking an oath? Or are we just singing it to please our ears? Are we even fair to our “past heroes” whose labor we are letting to go in vain?
The earlier we face the reality that no one can do it for us, the better, and this is where my dilemma starts; “How can Nigerian youth adopt “the spirit of love, peace, and unity”, and act to make things right?
“I should be doing this at home too;” I whispered. I felt my lips moving as I silently said; “Oh yes, I can mobilize my friends, relations and the people that mean good for Nigeria to help volunteer in many things.”
