The blame for what Sierra Leone has become falls on you and me. Not Momoh, not Sheki, not Kabba, not Ernest and definitely not Maada.
Our wickedness stinks to the high heavens as we go about our daily lives, pulling down everyone and everything to become rich.
We import substandard Chinese products, fake drugs and expired baby food unfit for human consumption, destroying the environment with aided by the Chinese and we have the nerve to complain about leadership and governance?
We even steal from widows, orphans, and refugees. We take their food and sell it for profit. No conscience. No fear of God. Nothing is sacred. No one is spared.
Our politicians create lies to win power and manipulate the minds of the ignorant masses. Our architects, engineers and contractors build substandard roads, schools, houses, hospitals, all for profit at the expense of human life; an invaluable item which all our profit and contract sum cannot buy.
One would think this behavior is reserved for urchins but it would surprise you that this is the character of many decent looking people who appear to be normal but are not any better than Boko Haram or Al-Shabaab members. They are church members, husbands, wives and sadly youths.
We pervert justice and pretend we do not know right from wrong just to serve our selfish interests. We loot the State and dump the booty in Dubai and Swiss banks. Slave traders pale in comparison to what we do to ourselves today. We are wickedness personified.
We take bribe and pay bribes to change judgment, to give what others don’t deserve to them, received what is not rightfully ours, to keep quiet whilst the innocent suffer, to deny those who deserve what is due them.
So much hatred flows in our blood and we transfer it to our children. It’s evident in what we say and do.
We have fasting and prayer sessions all year long, night vigils and deliverance when the actual problem is us.
We simply cannot learn to love others as the Bible say. It is ME, ME and ME ONLY. That is all that ever matters. It is sickening.
Remember that God will not come from heaven to build our society for us. We can make our societies, communities and nation’s heaven or hell. That power lies within us.
We can blame no one for what has befallen us as a country. We watch and appear unconcerned while an act of injustice is perpetrated.
Any Christian or Muslim who cannot love has no business in politics, Government and in Sierra Leone.
Until we understand this, we will continue on this path of destruction.
We litter around and still call on Government to come and clean it for us.
Others sleep with innocent children in the name of helping them in examination or get Jobs. I can Change, you can Change, they can Change and, we can Change by Sharing and Spreading this message.
Change starts with me, and you reading this message.
