I am so used to Africa mourning for deaths that could have been prevented with just little measures of focusing on problems and ensuring counter-attacks. I no longer feel pain in relation to mass deaths because I always see that on my news feed and it seems to be a normality. This does not suggest I am okay with the problem, I am simply tired of seeing Ghana mourn every year because of the same old preventable floods. Let us ignore mourning in the year to come by working tirelessly at demolishing buildings on waterways without regards (this is where I love dictatorship), dissilting gutters, propagating the continuous use of recycle bins to divert the route of waste that cannot decompose and lastly see people who litter around in careless abundance as CRIMINALS.
Why should they suffer the punishment of a criminal? They are capable of murder, that satchete dropped has the potential of joining the numerous other rubbish to choke a waterway which will cause a flood that will progressively kill hundreds or millions in case it is not picked up by a ZOOMLION janitor or responsible Ghanaian like YOU and I. The “GhanaMourns” aura is so filthy and stinky, I don’t want to experience it again in forthcoming years. They are dead, the victims are dead, since when did mourning cause a ressurection. But mourning however takes the energy of the mourner, why then not make the death of that loved one worth it by preventing the death of another loved one whom you might even love way better than the deceased. Curb the energy of crying into preventions.
And Say No to Mourning not because of the Joy of Death but rather in the light of preventing what is preventable!
