***Collette Orji - End The Slavery & Imprisonment of excessive demands for Burials In Igbo Lands***
I've finally established a fact both on social media and among my intelligent wonderful WONDERS that I do not engage on issues I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT. Coco wonder talks about what she Knows & It's Proven!
President of American Donald J Trump became the president at age 70 while the Former President Barack Obama retired from the office at Age 55.
What does this simple truth and analogy tell you?
That Life is NOT a competition and You can become what you want at any time so long as you keep the Focus right? Now! This analogy failed to express one truth that's also not the same for everyone. ''AS YOU GROW OLDER, YOU BECOME POORER'.
Yes, I said that. Please read to the end before Frowning your faces...
A man who was at his best prime at 35, great job, gets marries, start the process of responsibility and maturity, maybe even have a kid or more, your wealth starts diversifying. You now share the same amount of money you use to eat alone with every one family that you have called your own.
Wives and husbands and even children start joining forces to make things a little easier YET, Sometimes, it just is not easy as so many families, live from hand to mouth abi mouth to hand ...
I don't know.
Things become tougher, kids grow up, schools, health, and guess what - AGE SETS INTO BOTH PARENTS, AND THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SPEND AND PUT IN MORE WORKING HOURS LIKE THEY DID WHEN THEY WERE YOUNGER.
Problems come, life sets in, sicknesses, family issues, so many things come in, car problems, rents - etc and all the things that daddy ad mummy use to be able to do, they can no longer do it, and worst of it all DEATH COMES CALLING!!!
DADDY IS NO MORE! OR MUMMY IS NO MORE!!
Then the villagers, communities, village rituals, cultures and traditions and every Adam and Eve COMES WITH THEIR EVIL and you have a whole LIST of what to do, and how to finally bury your loved one. THIS LIST SHOULD BE ABOLISHED LIKE THE LAWS OF SLAVE TRADE.
There's nothing that has destroyed families more than the sudden death of a parent. The children cry MORE about the MONEY to use for BURIAL than the PAIN of losing their parents. It should not be so.
The church is useless in the Igbo lands cause they have not done as much as they should to completely ERADICATE this Trait of HIV Virus called the Burial Rites and Bullshit!
So many laws, so many regulations, so many ills follow my igbo people. The death of a parent in the igbo community is an establish ABOMINATION considering what the family members have to go through Albeit the money spend KNOWING fully well No church priest or pastor or deity can raise the dead like the storybooks of their master Jesus Christ did.
They all Jokers just parading and setting people into more BONDAGES.
We should be able to bury our loved ones, where we chose to, when we want to and how we can knowing fully well, LIFE IN ITSELF IS REALLY HARD.
END THE SLAVERY MENTALITY OF BURIALS IN IGBO LANDS. NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN RAISED AFTER DYING. STOP PUTTING FAMILIES IN BONDAGES AND DEBT AND BRINGING EVIL INTO HOMES EVEN AS THEY SHARE A GREAT LOSS.
