I join with many others today to say Happy Independence Day to Nigeria. My beloved Nigeria. I have traveled there many times and have been adopted by a few families there. It is rumored that my grandfather’s father was a stowaway from Nigeria. I even almost married one. Nigeria seems to have found its way into my life, long before I would travel there and fall in love with the people and their culture.

They are plagued by many problems and corruption, to say the least. But they are also on the upswing thanks to their new leadership. I pray that Nigeria rises to be the great nation that it needs to be! The World is Watching…
