one woman's journey to wholeness…

Prince Goodlove provided an overview of the fighting and civil strife that was taking place in his country and how this has replaced the harmony in Nigeria because the water is gone in several places. The people of the north that no longer have water are now going south and doing hostile takeovers of lands where the water is still flowing. When he used these geographic terminologies, I again could only nod and agree because the Gullah/Geechee Nation’s onslaught that has led to people attempting to occupy the waterfronts and that has contributed to many of the extreme negative impacts on the water quality of our area has come via those from the north coming south as well. As Prince Goodlove said, “Those from the north now come south to take the land that the people of the south need to sustain themselves.” I could barely remain calm.
