I AM NIGERIAN (Not only Charlie)

In my mind, I have written several thousand words about the terrorism last week. Then realised there was no point. This sums it all up.

Attenti al Lupo

Today  I am also Nigerian (Not only Charlie).

Boko-Haram left bodies scattered everywhere in villages around northern Nigeria, killing as many as 2,000 people.

I don’t know their names.

That’s why today I am also Nigerian.

  1. Thank you for this. It is disgraceful how little news we are exposed to from other than N.A. and Europe! And yes, I am Nigerian.. my heart stands for every soul touched by acts of terror, of violence, of hatred.

  2. Since the beginning of this century, I have witnessed a large influx of Nigerian refugees into Switzerland, mostly Christians fleeing persecution. Sadly, the great majority were sent back and we lost track of them. Others whose application for asylum was rejected simply “disappeared”, and who knows where they have ended up – though some are certainly in the UK. I wonder how many thousands must be murdered before the so-called developed world reacts?
