Good morning dear reader,
This Easter we might have few reasons to rejoice. It has not been a good year since the Covid-19 pandemic struck the world, left many jobless and hundreds of people dead.
Many would have wished to pull a rabbit out of their hats this Easter and make magical memories with friends and family but due to economic challenges and worse off the imposed lockdown in some counties, that may not be forthcoming to many.
But regardless of the situation, we must find reasons to rejoice! Easter is a moment to reflect on many battles we have fought and won, and not the ones we have lost.
Easter symbolizes a sense of joy, therefore, we must reinvent, reposition and repackage ourselves for renewal and new beginnings.
The symbolic suffering of Jesus Christ and his subsequent resurrection does not draw lessons for Christians only but for the whole human race. It reminds us that at our lowest moment, we can fight a good fight and emerge victors.
May you find solace in the many battles Jesus fought and rejoice over his victorious resurrection. Just like the son of God, we shall overcome!
That aside, here are top stories today:
