A moment of silence for George Floyd.
A moment of silence for Uwa Omozuwa.
This past week has been something else. What is happening in the world for God’s sake? The funny thing about all of these is that these people are the ones that we happen to know about. What about others that we’ll never know?
I usually don’t address sensitive issues like these because they are just that – sensitive. But how long will we continue to sit back and be witnesses? I mean, these are the lives of people like you and me. But the other question is what should we do? What can we do? Or should God just come and take His people home? Because I’m tired and sick of the negativity in this world. In fact, I’m tired of being tired.
Mr. George Floyd was killed for allegedly presenting a forged cheque to a cashier who called the cops on him. He was begging. He kept saying ”I can’t breathe”. There was a white cop restraining him with his knee on his neck. That white knee killed George Floyd. Of course, everything happened because they ”suspected” that he was trying to be fraudulent. The cheque wasn’t even fake. The only mistake he made was that he was black. Racism in 2020? Really?
Uwa. Uwa was 22. She just gained admission into the University of Benin but she’s gone now. She was raped and brutalized in a church. A church!! Women are not safe anymore. Is this how we’re going to keep living in fear? It’s scary, to be honest. What excuse is there for rape?
These days, people can’t even come out to protest against these wrongdoings because there is no more justice. Tina was just an innocent bystander cut down in her prime from a stray bullet. Bullet from the gun of a policeman that was supposed to be protecting this innocent soul. She was 16. She didn’t deserve to die. Will she get justice?
A moment of silence for Tina Ezekwe.
Honestly, my heart cannot take anymore and all I want is for justice to be served. Will Uwa get Justice? What about Floyd? What can we do? What can we do?? We deserve better! The world deserves better. What can we do?!
WHAT CAN WE DO?!
I’ll be seeing you in the comment section.
