The Last kiss

Caryn Dasah1
Posted November 23, 2020 from Cameroon

Saturdays are for  parties I told myself as I wakeup from a long night of worry.

I was set to make that day count little dis I know the enemy always had a plan to disrupt yours.  Oh finally my mothers could laugh again, out there is hope.  We had monitored and cake to a conclusion that this academic year will be a remarkable one where our children could go to school without any fear as some fractions of "Ambas" had given their word not to distort schools like it was the previous years.

Finally our voices have been heard! Oh praise the Lord!

Little did we know the silence was pregnant.

We were about to witness another turn, we will again move to the streets crying.

Children left their homes, went to school and death caught up with them.

The Last kiss of a parent whose only son died, a son who waved good bye to his parents and off he went to study to become the next president and change Maker in this part of the world,  was killed in a class room

Unbelievable, Unthinkable,  unexplainable how cruel people can be.

It is time to end these killings and let peace reign in Cameroon. 

Hear the stories how young women are changing the narratives,  challenging structures and despite the threats are building peace in Cameroon #GenerationEquality  #Endanglophonecrisis  #SheBuildsPeace  #StandWithWomenPeaceBuilders

 

This story was submitted in response to Peace for Cameroon.

Dear Caryn,
I am very sorry to hear what is happening in the Anglophone part of Cameroun. I am disheartened to hear about the killing of an innocent young man, and can imagine the anguish of a mother. I hear and feel the pain of your community.

This conflict has been going on for quite sometime, and I do hope that one day in the not too distant a future, your part of Cameroun will find peace.
All the best. Please keep us updated. Thank you.

Dearest Caryn Dasahi,
There is nothing more cruel than attacking and killing children because children have no fault, no political affiliation, no agendas. They are innocent only and only deserving love, care, nutrition, education, protection, mentoring and love again. I do not know what material killers of children made of? Were they not children? Do they not have parents for who they are everything? What are they thinking, really? I pray to God to shun evil in every form. Let every evil man and woman be taken away from the face of earth to another universe where like-minded people live- not here, please. Earth wants peace and love only. Amen.
Hugs and prayers,
Urmila Chanam

Dear Caryn,

As a mother with young children, your words struck the core of my heart and left me weeping for the innocent Cameroonian children. You painted this image well, "The Last kiss of a parent whose only son died, a son who waved good bye to his parents and off he went to study to become the next president and change Maker in this part of the world, was killed in a class room". How heartbreaking!

We cry for justice. Weeping with you. HUGS!
