Terror is not an anomaly in Nigeria and each day we live is a gift. Violence is not an aberration, but each moment we are free from it is a blessing. Despite all this I still have cause to celebrate, for despite the carnage, hope remains, despite the violence, peace remains and despite death we remain, unresting, questing, hopeful. I celebrate Nigeria's people and I ask that we do not give up hope. I ask that we be proactive in changing Nigeria. I ask that we choose life.
