Turning their lemons into lemonades
People don’t choose troubles, troubles choose people. This, unfortunately, is the harsh reality of human existence that has led many, who life did visit with its many troubles, to the point of depression, hopelessness, extreme emotional breakdown and in many cases, suicide. For many, the warped challenges that life brings their way has led them to live their lives with seething anger, frustration, hatred, transferred aggression, vengeance, violence, and indeed all manner of vices. The World Health Organization (WHO) once reported that Nigeria recorded the highest rate of suicide and depression among African countries, and ranked sixth in the global index at 9.5% out of 100,000 people.1 This gives a serious cause for concern, a cause that the Bible Society of Nigeria has taken up to passionately address with the formulation of its Trauma Healing programme.
