We found ourselves oppresed in a dangerous darkness of silence, moving into the invisible cloudy road that leads to an unknown destination. We caught the glimpse of a foggy country road, submerged with challenges in the race of excellence.

The sound of the wind kept us connected and shelter us in the train of peace, which took off from the station and finding his way to an unknown destination. History move around at tremendous speed, as memories are sprouting from a leaving story. When hope becomes our everyday mantra, we got tired because nothing is changing, but getting worst. The country road we dive into without navigation is leading us to a destination that history could not thought about it nor appreciate it. This has been a nightmare, a scary nightmare under the visions of those that have the ability to wake up the nightmare. If those that are responsible to bring change could not devour and provide a peaceful atmosphere to the citizens, how can they rule. The society and nature is angry with us, because we could not afford to give them what they need.

Our environment changes from what we then know or heard of, but yet there was something deeper than those changes that frightened us. Without it, all  what we do or could be done will become like a dead seedlings sowed into the soil for some periods, but those seedlings will not germinate because it lacks some vital features that leads to it’s dead. This kind of seed cannot be grown nor harvested. It is hard to say exactly how we lost peace in our country, something the mind could not thought about it or the eyes visualize it. This was the beginning of our burning time, when we lost peace. It was a season of deadful speculations, crime became real, consequences of sin were visible everywhere, in every fight, robbery, school children abducted, suicide bombers blown into eternity, farmers slaughtered, kidnapping, banditry, and all forms of criminal act. This has been our foggy country road, leading to unknown destination. There is a vast amount of confusion, we don’t know when we left the good country road.

It is certainly sad that our senses could not lead us out of those situations. What is a country without peace? What can you do when you are in fear? What has our thoughts accommodated to think of selling our peace?

The fear I heard in people voice across the country is becoming into an alarming manner. A fear that is challenging and putting the country into destruction, a country without protection, no peace nor courage to fight a war. As I imagined this fear, it can lead to a situation when citizens will defend themselves and provide security to their families and communities. To defend oneself against a fear, is to insure that one will be conquered by it, fear must be faced and tackled.

Things get worse, people became more guilty and more frightened and all are kept inside them. The anguish cannot be described, the country is devastated, tearing everything down, tearing children from their parents and causing pain. This racial nightmare can be overcome and ended to acheive our country’s peace and change our history.
