The earth would eventually succumb to the decimation of its lands and waters if the trend continued with no checks in place to stop it. ―Don Okolo Sorry, dear Readers. It appeared as if I took a sabbatical. Only I didn’t. I was here all along bemoaning the coming of the end of a once-great nation. Rome fell.

Ambrose: Look, these girls that you guys are empowering will still grow up to marry these boys that you are neglecting. Ann: (trying to understand) Explain better.

“Growing up as an Ibo person, the concept of another human being superior to me did not exist because I did not have the exposure that could even suggest such a thought process” ― Ichie Onwuchekwa Pardon me for writing to you in this manner.
