READ THE INSPIRING STORY OF KINDNESS
It is not every day that we come across people who reach out to the needy with a good intention. In a world like ours where personal gain is the order of the day, it’s extremely hard to see people doing good things for the love of it. Most people do good because they hope to gain publicity and wealth. It is even more difficult to see young people these days engaged in helping the needy. All our youths are after are fast cash and luxuries of life.
As a result, I decided to share this inspiring story with all my readers out there. It’s unusual for a beautiful young barrister to decide to celebrate her birthday in a way that can be termed “un fashionable”. The Lady in question goes by the name Barr. Fisayo Aransiola. Of all the glamorous places she could have gone to celebrate her birthday, she chose an NGO that serves as a rehabilitation center and caters for juvenile delinquents, abused and trafficked girls who may have been exposed to harsh ways of life.
Worthy of note is the joy and sense of belonging that these girls felt. This little act of kindness by Miss Aransiola gave their self-esteem the much needed lift. In her opening speech she charged the girls to believe in themselves and not allow themselves to be taken advantage of by men. She also urged them to forget their past and focus on their future, that there is a new dawn for everyone.
Akinlolu Timothy Kehinde (SAN) who was present at the event commended Miss Aransiola while urging the girls to take a righteous path and always believe in God. Fela Bright from Steps to Life...Nig. also shared his personal experiences in life with the girls. He talked about lessons learnt from past mistakes. But which he did not allow to destroy him, from which they too can draw inspirations. He encouraged them to be obedient and chart a new course in life.
