Ministry of Indifference!

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

Indeed, life’s greatest snare is Indifference. In my honest opinion, I believe it is our indifference to our issues (politics, socio-economic growth, education, and ultimately our collective dreams)  that keeps us drenched in worry, confusion and poor development in all areas of our lives – personally and as a nation.

It’s been over a week since four young and promising lives were crushed out of existence; it’s been many months ago when a young girl was raped by five men and was recorded and posted on you-tube; many weeks of flooding in many areas in the Nation; and many other issues that we conveniently rant about for a few days and then watch as it slips under the carpet.

Under the Nigerian carpet are many unresolved issues- issues we had once fought hard but not long enough for. These are issues that crawl out from their hiding place to torment us later.

It is a vicious cycle of felony and neglect. Ultimately, it is our indifference that is killing us – not the many crimes that have been committed.

If we can find our passion and run with it, no matter how small we think the issues are, we will change our society and break the vicious cycle so that our children can inherit a more stable society.

Let us find the passion to fight for what we believe in. If we stamp our feet hard enough on the ground, the earth will shake!

    Is just questions, & questions & more questions. Is it dat we havnt prayed enough? Is it d end time? Is it dat we dont know what to do or cant do what we know? I dont want to say am tired of hearing answers or solutions,,, it’s high time we implemented these so called solutions & started reaping positive results. My heart bleeds, i pray i faint not.

    ‘I don’t care attitude’ has destroyed our nation. Both the leaders and the citizens have this same attitude. May God save Nigeria. Nice write up, Steph

    Our four boys died, too bad! Come to think of it it has been a culture. It is more of a social problem then a government problem. Most people out there like mob action. It is not up to government to decide, it is up to society to get civilized. When the boys were in that hell, there were people laughing their heads off and taking pictures in stead of constituting a restraining effect to the evil act. I blame it to the parents that have given birth to those evi public. If they were brought up with good morals they would have fought back the killers. Every thing boils than to up bringing. Governments don’t raise children, people do. The police are blamed when they take offenders to court but praised when they shoot them behind close doors. The problem is that our society just like our road users are impatient and can’t bear the legal process in cases. The earlier we know where the problem is, the better.
