    My struggles...

     
    This is my third ireport so far I am from a country I see as a failing state Nigeria early in life I have learned to critic lots of things in life, I refused to just sit down and digest anything that comes out of the mouth of anyone including my president and his wife who are bigots a couple of years ago when we voted him into power i felt a chance had come for change,
    A man closer to our age bracket been president will have an eye for the youths and things we gonna get better, today I am suicidal, I was an umpire who contributed his lot honestly in bringing him into office, I h regret today. I agree I am a complexed been and many people will never understand me because they judge me before hearing my views. I have always had dreams of living my whole life in the united states of America, I have not been turned down yet at the embassy and I hope that will not happen when I eventually get my chance someday which will be soon, I was born into a polygamous home I hardly have communication with my elder ones due to the problems we had as we grew up I will continue to do what I can to help young men and women who need my assistance, i am not the best and I have come a very long way, i will not judge people rather I will listen to their problems analyse without been judge life is not easy in Nigeria, Africa, Asia and the world over there is suffering and lots of people may never be able to express themselves I take solace in writing. my pains as I am not good in talking about them I want to live my footprints on the sands of time I want to have the biggest charity organisation the world has ever seen with health care educational and recreational activities it must be in a third world country such as mine or Brazil in the americas or Vietnam in Asia I just want to have an impact on humanity, I want to be remembered for bringing food to the mouths of millions of children adults and the needy, i will want to have achieved that at age 40 if not fully but partly I should have started to live my vision.. thanks to CNN ireport I will meet people who will have same objectives and they will partner with me and lets brainstorm the world together.
