Ben Okri: My family values
Thanks to Naijablog I stumbled upon this beautiful piece by Ben Okri.
"One of the greatest gifts my father gave me – unintentionally – was witnessing the courage with which he bore adversity. We had a bit of a rollercoaster life with some really challenging financial periods. He was always unshaken, completely tranquil, the same ebullient, laughing, jovial man. I learned that life will go through changes – up and down and up again.It's what life does."
Whoever knows Ben will surely say aloud: Dat's right!
