UNLISTED


 
Groping in the dark
Is all I’m able to
Feeling my way
Looking for where to lean
Is all I’m worth

Asking for direction
When all we get is uninterested stares
Placing our fate in the hands of chance
Listening to the final heartbeat
The heartbeat of a heart
Meant to heal
Meant to give

Kneeling praying
Meditating. How long?
Searching, endlessly
                                              

Tragedies of life
Surrounding us
Hoping to cloud and ensnare us
Believing that we are lost
No echoes to draw us back
Back to how we once were
Such a distant memory
Yet not so long ago.


Still, we see a glimmer of hope
Spark of life
Our baskets we are told still carry water
He still answers our prayers
Which were pending and still put on hold
The rejected stone became the corner stone

Because they heard us
They felt our pain
They strove to take it all back
But they can’t make us forget
How can we?

All my children gone in a day
My family lost in the smoke
How do I begin to mourn for my parents?
When I can barely breathe?
Trying to keep the family

I still believe we can make it
Even though we have our backs
Up against the wall
Against all the evils of life
That try to squeeze life out of us
But with WE ARE JOS
We will make it

Yes we will, because we will give. So we appeal to you to join us on this. Please let’s give. Have the compassion .Be compassionate.
-A PERSON’S A PERSON NO MATTER HOW LITTLE.

What Would You Do?



What if they were your grandparents?















What if this was your brother or sister?



















What if you were them?





This is us. We.Are.Jos.
We survived it but it is still us and it's up to us.
What should we do?
I'm sick and tired of talking about it.
It's really time for us to do something.
What should we do?
No. Really what should we do?
Please use those brains that you are still alive to use.
Think of what we should do and share your ideas.
We.Are.Jos.

Renewed Violence in Jos.

Hello people,

This is bad news to share about Jos. The people still need all the help they can get. Please talk to the people you know in the government, federal and state, please give to settled in volunteer agencies like the Red Cross or NEMA. And please keep praying for peace in that part of the country. We are still working out specifics of how this team will contribute and will share the news with you as soon as possible.

*******************************

Scores of people are thought to have been killed in clashes between pastoralists from the surrounding hillside region and villagers close to the central Nigerian city of Jos.

Police sources on Sunday put the number of dead at just eight, but witnesses reported many more bodies, with one estimate rising to more than 100 people.

Some of the bodies were reported to be charred and scarred by machete blows and the AFP news agency reported there were many children among the dead.

Yvonne Ndege, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Abuja, said: "There is conflicting information about the number of people who may have been killed.

"Police are saying about eight people have been killed but I have spoken to a number of people in Jos who said the number is higher."

A reporter with the Reuters news agency counted 100 bodies piled in the street.

Witnesses said that the pastoralists staged an overnight raid in the village of Dogo Nahawa, firing into the air and then attacking those who came out of their houses.

"They came around 3 O'clock in the morning and they started shooting into the air," Peter Jang, a Dogo Nahawa resident, said.

"The shooting was just meant to bring people from their houses and then when people came out they started cutting them with machetes," he said.

Ndege reported: "A senior police chief said the perpetrators of this attack came in from Bauchi state. The fighting exploded between herdsmen from Bauchi and villagers.

"The Red Cross, is reporting that as a consequence of this violence at least 5-600 people are leaving the area in fear of their lives."

Nearby Jos, the capital of Plateau state, was the scene of sectarian violence which killed hundreds of people in January.

The city, which lies at the crossroads of Nigeria's Muslim north and predominantly Christian south, saw four days of clashes.
