10 years After and we are still fighting. I remember when we took the fight to Abuja during the #EiE protest . They pointing guns at us and I remember for a second, my life flashed before my eyes. But! … instead of Fear, I got Mad. Some Anger I didn’t even know existed took over me, I charged at towards them and their guns and shouted !
Do you know we fight for you? We fight for your children and children’s children unborn?! One of the military close to tears then said “I’m sorry , I don’t have a choice. 10 years After, that Anger is still there but today , I hope we all have a choice to say … F it!
