Today marks the one year anniversary of my weblogazine, my 9th year in the United States and the one year anniversary of the London Bombings that killed 52 people
(http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/spl/hi/uk/05/london_blasts/victims/default.stm) including 26 year old Anthony Fatayi-Williams who was a friend to many. His loss was tragic home hit for many of us Nigerians in the diaspora and of course at home. Though I didn't know him personally he was a friend some of my friends and acquintances.
His mother Mrs Fatayi-Williams is remembering her only son with this book For the Love of Anthony
You can read the first post 'The Nigerian Face in the War on Terrorism' here (http://according2adaure.blogspot.com/2005/07/nigerian-face-in-war-on-terrorism.html).
Today we pause to remember Anthony, the other victims and those innocent people who have died and continue to die in the hands of callous people who use religion and other tools of politics as a guise. Let's also pray that God would find a solution to this problem in our life time so that the world can become a safer place for us and our children.
This comment section will be silent today in their honor. I'll be back tomorrow.
