Over the last few days the story of Adaobi M. Obih has flooded my Facebook timeline and has made me incredibly sad. I’m not going to rehash the details because I don’t think I’m capable of writing about it in a way that is befitting but you can click here for the story, but it came to my realization that I have an outlet to help in this situation, and that the smallest thing is still good enough.
I’m sad for her family and her friends, and I can’t imagine, nor do I ever want to experience the anger, and sadness, and frustration that they are feeling now. I think that it’s moments like this where I really see how evil people are capable of being.
A friend of hers wrote this about the situation and I’m asking you to please help out:
