At Christmas we are "Only As Strong As Our Weakest Point"

From Nigeria Health Watch Wed Dec 26 2012, 13:13:00

Dear Friends,

Christmas two years ago, I asked my friend; Patrick Anigbo to reflect on a very personal story. This Christmas, I was reminded of the post as the issues are still as relevant now as they were then, maybe more so. The central message is that our society, indeed any society is only as strong as its weakest point....this is Paddy's story....enjoy, reflect, do.
