Where Responsibility Lies As I sat from the corner of the hall, I watched this funny scenario. How funny it might be, I handpicked the lessons and decided to relay them to you.

"Mummy, he hit me! , she said. "It was after a wedding reception, the guests had started to leave when this young girl came crying to her mother telling her this. Her mother's query made her realise that it was Ann's twin brother who had hit her on the head for a reason that sounded untrivial. Ann remained convinced that it was her brother's fault and he ought to be punished with her receiving mum's sympathy and be absolved of all responsibility.



Alex, her brother on the other hand is equally certain she started it. "She hit me first and took my toy", was his defence. Then right in front of their mum, they began a verbal altercation that led to their mum beating them up.



Similarly, In life, we grow older, but not always wiser. "It just happened" we say, then proceed to blame people and circumstances. We dance to the tune yet we do not want to play the piper, so we complain about our consequences, saying it was not our fault.
.
Similarly, the elder brother in the parable of the prodigal son wanted the priveleges of being a son, but he was not willing to accept the obligations and responsibility that came with being a brother. Little wonder he could not celebrate his brother's return.



Truly, life would be better if we acknowledge our faults and know that even though someone else had initiated it, our part in such actions, remain our responsibilities...

Homeless or Houseless?


"One of my own opinions on homes and the homeless is that there are people in the world who may have a roof over their heads but can still be homeless, like orphans and wives whose husbands abuse them.

It was a a party campaign. The incumbent president was to campaign in the city. That was where I saw MALEVOLENCE at its peak and FOLLY at its apex. I saw children being abused and adults exercising stupidity born out of poverty and greed. Classes were closed and students were taken to the street carrying placards of the Governor, the so called "Saviour of the People" for second term.

The law of value

As I walked past the Oba Adesida Market Road in Akure, Ondo state, I got to meet some handicapped, begging. I moved further and saw a full grown, body abled man, begging for money. I dipped my hands into my wallet and got the worst, tattered Naira notes and gave it out to them. You know what? They accepted it with great ecstascy. Right there, they taught me value!

Writing on Success is something else. People have blogged for long on Success. Today, you find a success tip, tomorrow you find 21 things to help you remain at the peak, Making success and so on. Preferably, these are good ones. But, I actually believe that making success a possibility depends on the measure of GRACE and it's use. Take for instance, Michal Akpos is my friend; but what he's got to do to become successful differs in "some sense" from what I should do to attain same success- that's the GRACE

Did you know that a young Rotimi Amaechi was the Personal assistant to a Peter Odili when he was the deputy governor of River State over two decades ago? Today he is the governor of Rivers State!

A young Obama in the 90s led a community campaign for the election of president Clinton. Today Obama is president.

Chimamanda Adichie grew up in the same house owned by Chinua Achebe in Nsukka.. Today, Adichie is perhaps Africa's biggest name in literature.

Now, talking about Apple, do you know that Steve Jobs dropped out of school to work for his mentors, Hewlett and Packard (HP). Now you see why an apple never falls too far from its tree.

What does it take to grow succession? What does it take to succeed? What does it take to succeed success?

Grace and Grace alone!
