Nigeria, Was I Not Mourning Enough For You?

I weep with you too my darling. I weep
for Nigeria, the mother of your mother.
But my tears will be silent no more
My tears shall MARCH!
Dear Nigeria

I guess it was just too much to ask that you not load any additional grief-inducing burden upon my tired shoulders. I mean why should you care about me? No worries, I don't blame you. It is the people I placed in power over you that I blame. No, scratch that. I actually blame myself. Yes, I blame myself for being one of  those who have only ranted and raved about your condition but done nothing. 

Until now.

If those people in Aso Rock think that 'we will get over it' and so they can continue to shrug their shoulders like people who do not understand the pain of losing a child. If they think that business as usual can continue as you, Nigeria continue to eat your own children, slaughter your own future, they have another think coming.

I, Salt, shall march! If you read this and have warm blood running through your veins, I beg of you, rant, rave, and please pray! But in addition, come and march!!! Enough is enough! This wanton killing of our country's tomorrow has got to stop.  We have got to make it stop.

Nigerian woman! Let your tears ACT! Come and March!
Together, our Voices will have the power those in power seem to lack!

We go with God! Details below:
