Which Nigerian icon can pass away and such farewell/homage/respect will be accorded by the Nigerian's as the South African's to Mandela. Hmmmmmm...cant think of any. Our so called "leader's" should do more of making positive impact on the lives of Nigerian's than bagging money. A word is enough 4 d wise.

Franklin Onyejaju said...

Death is inevitable.It's a pity it's a debt we all owe.We have to go someday!

As soon as you die,your identity becomes a "body". People start using phrases like "bring the body","take the body to the grave","lower the body in the grave" etc. People you tried to impress stop calling you by name. Live a life to impress your Creator,not the created.

Take chances,spend money on things you love,laugh till your stomach hurts,dance even if you are too bad at it,pose stupidly for photos.

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is when life dies inside you while alive.
