'Tis a strange mystery, the power of words! Life is in them, and death. A word can send The crimson colour hurrying to the cheek. Hurrying with many meanings; or can turn The current cold and deadly to the heart.

"Our Governor Sir, hardly does any day pass in Nigeria, without a report of a massacre of Nigerians by Nigerians or at least, coordinated by Nigerians. Hardly does a day pass, without the report of a major violent crime committed against Nigerians by Nigerians. Hardly does a day pass, without the story of how large sums of money are stolen by Nigerians who are in positions of trust. The revelations at the various probes by the National Assembly are heart breaking as billions of Naira meant for the improvement in the welfare and condition of living of ordinary Nigerians are brazenly stolen by those who they are entrusted in their care. All these are examples of violence against the people of Nigeria. The killings and maiming of Nigerians, whether by Boko Haram, Militants, cult groups, kidnappers, armed robbers, misguided youths, political thugs and other forms of societal vices by deviant groups under whatever guise, are all examples of direct violence. There is also structural violence, which is the violence that does not hurt or kill through fists or guns or bombs, but through social structures that produce poverty, death and enormous suffering such as: corruption, injustice and bad governance. The truth is that, no one will be able to properly address the problems of direct violence especially, those with ideological inclination without understanding the relationship between direct violence and structural violence. For instance, take a hypothetical example of a man who loses his land or fishing port to oil /gas exploitation because of unjust laws. His son loses her mother because of poverty and crumbling social infrastructure in the Niger Delta, his daughter cannot further her education because the surviving parent is poor. Yet, they live closer oil pipelines When she manages to go to school through community effort. She is told that there is no job for her. She becomes unemployed and frustrated. The community also becomes frustrated, and unable to sponsor others like her. They become abandoned and trapped in the heinous poverty circle while their God-given resources are carted away and used to fund a system of fiscal federalism that is a misnomer and unbecoming of any true federation. The fund is used to pay for the construction of the expensive city of Abuja, fund the huge corruption that we read daily in the newspapers, finance expatriate workers in the Oil and Gas Industry who enjoy highest condition of service, incomparable to any of their equivalent in the world, fund one of the most expensive National Assemblies in the world and provide for the lavish and hedonistic lifestyle of the privileged few Nigerians . Our Governor Sir, you will agree with us that hunger, neglect, frustration and deprivation of this magnitude IN THE MIDST OF PLENTY is a serious form of violence, capable of pushing ( indeed has pushed) the man and his community into direct violence. The story is also not different in Northern Nigeria, where years of deprivation, neglect, corruption and misrule by the ruling elites have led to the emergence and establishment of dynasties of poverty in the form of ‘Almajiris’, and now we all cry over the terror in the land, occasioned by the ‘Boko Haram’ insurgence. Let me quickly add that I am not by any chance providing any justification for criminal activities, I am only showing how one crime, for example corruption, leads to another. For example, the killings by ‘Boko Haram’ or militant/cult groups in the Niger Delta. This analysis in my view, is important if we must address the unacceptable violence, insecurity and wanton killings in Nigeria that is fast becoming a way of life in our beloved country."

"Our society is filled with runaways, dropouts, and quitters. The epidemic of walking away has hit our land with effects as devastating as the bubonic plague, and it has destroyed millions of effective lives and relationships. We are so self-centered that we have ceased to lay down our lives for others. We have seen others faint or walk away and we have followed in their weakness. We have fainted when we could have persevered by exchanging our strength for His! With His strength, not only could we have kept on walking, we could have run!"

1. Never compare your life with someone else's life. For, you have no idea what he or she does secretly i.e. behind your back. 2. Don't have negative thoughts over things that you can't control. And refuse to bear grudges against anyone right here or out there. In otherwords, forgive all things and everyone. 3. Never over do anything, have a limit and keep to it. 4. Don't take yourself and life so seriously. For, you ought not to do that. I mean, disregard/overlook somethings sometimes. 5. Never waste your precious energy/time on gossip or habits like that. Rather, utilize/maximize your God-given energy and time. 6. Dream big, be a visionary and dare to pursue your dream and vision unyieldinly until you realize them. 7. Listen up, envy is a waste of time. Yes! you already have all you need presently to survive. Any other thing which you think that you need to live comfortably will be given unto you by God in due course i.e. at the right and proper time. 8. Emancipate yourself from the issues of the past. I mean, stop living in your past life and mistakes . For, living in your past is most likely to ruin your present happiness and future success. 9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. So, don't hate anyone. Do love all and sundry as much as you can. 10. Strive to live in peace with everyone. For, peace is better off than war or conflict. 11. In case you don't know, no one else is responsible for your happiness except your own self. Yes! you heard me right. So, always be happy and never sad. 12. You've got to realize that life is a school and you are meant to learn daily. Moreover, challenges are simply part of life. They do appear just for awhile and then fade away like flowers. Thus, never mind your challenges. 13. Always smile, laugh and share all you have with someone else/others. Beause, you've got to be doing that. Never forget, givers never lack. 14. Conclusively, dare to believe in God almighty and do believe he can do all things. Besides, believe in your own self i.e. be self confident. For, it is expected of you. That's just a piece of advice and words of encouragement for you.

108 is a special sacred number in Eastern cultures and Hinduism, the most ancient religion in our world. To illustrate, Shivaganas are 108 in number, and therefore Shaiva's disciples use 108 Rudraksha beaded lace for their japa. They also recite supreme lord Shiva's 108 names daily during their morning Shivapuja. Likewise, in Gaudiya Vaishnavism, there are 108 gopis of Vrindavan. Srivaishnavism has 108 Divya Kshetras of Lord Vishnu, called as 108 Divya Desam. It's surely fascinating to know the religious significance and sacredness of 108.
