One person posted on a page that he felt like killing himself (#Uganda). Incidentally, all the comments were mostly encouraging him. "hurry up". "are you dead yet". "do it stop wasting our time". I posted "I am deleting your post since you are going to be dead anyway". Of course I did not delete it because .. it would be wrong. AND I am now watching more people saying "RIP", etc.. This is what we have turned Ugandans into, no compassion. BUT COME ON you all, I already sent a private message to that person so he ain't gonna die any time soon. Do you people know the level of suffering Uganda is going through? Do you read the news? Do you know the despair and broken spirits with no hope for any ray of sunshine? Many youth have apparently killed themselves (remember the jumpers in Kampala). You see, what the world is ignoring is the suffering of the majority of Ugandans. People have no food, no school fees, no jobs, no income, no medicine. It is a hopeless place to be at. When you have a broken spirit, it takes a lot of work to repair your spirit. Please, if you hear of anyone attempting suicide or even talking to your directly, do not be like me. I have always told everyone to just go ahead and do it and get over it, if they give me 5 mins of their time first. so far, it works. BUT we need all of us to realise that our people are suffering and we have to do everything possible to hang on and encourage each other to want to live. It is not as if they can even donate their organs to any one so of what use would their untimely death be?
