A Moment of Silence For Chinua Achebe…

Chinua-Achebe-Things-Fall-ApartI just found out that the Nigerian Writer, Chinua Achebe died on Thursday night. I’m saddened by the news. Mr. Achebe was a brilliant writer and political advocate. He is most famous for his political essays and literature. This is indeed a sad day for many, and I wanted to pay my tribute to his work. Chinua Achebe will be missed and his work will live on for years to come.

“A man who pays respect to the great paves the way for his own greatness.” 
― Chinua Achebe, (1930-2013)

  1. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
