His Body Disappeared From The Morgue

Mortuary 2

Aftermath of the serious headlong coalition involving two buses, which claimed ten lives on the spot, the fire service was called in to pull out the dead bodies from the wreckage. Identification wasn’t easy because of the state of the corpses, yet a woman identifies one of the corpses as her brother. He was an auto mechanic. His tool box which was with him before the tragedy occurred was found close to his dead body.

She rushes home wailing, to narrate the sad news to her mother and father. They quickly rushed to the scene but the bodies were already transferred to the mortuary. When they went to the mortuary, they saw their son’s body and the tool box among the items of those who lost their lives. It wasn’t a mistaken identity because Jame’s name is boldly written on his tool box. It was the saddest day for James’ family. When the family were leaving the mortuary, they went home with the deceased’s tool box.

When ready to bury James, they went to the mortuary to collect his body, but the body was nowhere to be found. The corpse has disappeared from the morgue without a trace. Their fears increased when they found out later at home that his tool box has also vanished. It was as if the mind is playing tricks on them but it is a reality.

Years passed, then one day, a woman from the village where the mechanic died, saw him working in an auto garage, in one of the big cities hundreds of kilometers from the village. “James, everyone thought you were dead after the accident. Why for a very long time you’ve failed to visit your mother and father aftermath the accident? The woman noticed something strange about James. Even though he didn’t give her an answer, she conluded: “Tomorrow I will tell your parents that I saw you here.”

When the woman went back to the village she quickly sped towards James’ family compound to tell them what she had seen. They refused to accept her story, asking if she is out of her mind, but she insisted that she is speaking the truth. The following day, they quickly joined the bus to where the mechanic is working but he was absent that day.

According to the director of the garage where James works, he received a message from one of his colleagues that he wasn’t feeling well and therefore will not be at work. Astonishingly, from the day James failed to come to work, he has never been seen again with his tool box. Is he going to begin a new life in another garage? Asked James family. The strange story remains a mystery.

The Hunter Who Couldn’t Find The Leaf Of Life

Certain stories make your ears tingle and captures your attention

Two snakes fighting

Certain stories make your ears tingle, capture your attention and make you feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Since childhood, I have heard certain stories from my original native country, Ghana. Many of these stories are real, like that of Okomfo Anokye, who danced and chanted down the golden stool from heaven. 

Since the golden stool is still available in the Ashanti Kingdom and the sword he planted and said no one can pull it out, still stands at the place, there is no room to say that the stories are untrue.

I still think about this story, because I don’t know if it’s true or false. A hunter went hunting for a deer to feed his family. It was very sunny, as usual in tropical Africa. Tired and thirsty, he leaned his back against a tree, as he sits in the shade of a very big tree. Adjacent him, he witnessed something he had never experienced in his entire life as a professional hunter.

The hunter was treated to a dramatic fight between two deadly snakes. The fight which lasted over thirty minutes resulted in the death of one of the snakes. The hunter wasn’t sure if the snake was actually dead or was in coma because the creature was lifeless and every effort of the other snake to revive the dead reptile or bring it back to life was futile.

The live snake abandoned its lifeless opponent and went into the bush. Less than a minute the reptile emerged from the bush with a leaf in its mouth and inserted into the mouth of the dead snake, then suddenly the creature woke up and the two retreated into the bush. The amazed hunter tried to find the leaf the snake brought to wake the dead, but his search yielded to fruitless result.

He was totally disappointed and frustrated, as the wise snake didn’t leave behind a piece of the leaf for him to identify what that magic leaf was.  Could that leaf wake up a dead body? That was the question spinning in his mind. This is more than a mystery. God will never reveal everything to man because of greed. The rich would have bought everything to live forever and the poor man would never get the chance to enjoy a second life.

If One Pretends To Be Dead, Mourners Will Pretend To Bury You Alive

problem 1

Discussing your problems with someone you love is the best way to get help and solutions to the problem.

“If one pretends to be dead, mourners will pretend to bury you alive,” is one of the thousands of African proverbs meant to educate, shape our lives and inspire us, as each proverb carries a moral lesson, advice, and wisdom. This particular proverb speaks against pretending.

As imperfect human beings, we are responsible for both the good and bad things we do. Whichever way one takes it, to pretend is also considered to be something bad. The question is why do people pretend? According to a study, pretending has both advantages and disadvantages.

Sometimes one needs to pretend. For example, when all of a sudden in a cinema hall, a gunman on a shooting spree takes everyone by surprise without any escaping route, pretending to be dead among those already dead could save your life. But in other ways, pretending can cause self-destruction, depression, loneliness and other psychological problems. How?

The pressure in the society is enormous. Things are not going well, yet many people prefer to hide their problems behind a false smile. If you don’t share your problem with your family or a trustworthy friend, how can someone know your problem to give the attention or help you need? Researchers reveal that hiding a problem behind a false smile or faking happiness, is more likely to bring you harmful feelings.

You might not be happy with your job, because your boss or a colleague is sexually harassing you, exploiting you physically, emotionally and mentally, yet you wear a false smile behind such psychological scars. Instead of pretending to be okay, it’s always better to tell your problem to someone to receive help.

Many wish to be someone, because of the extravagant lives other people live. But we must be careful about what we sometimes wish for. We must be content with whatever we have to live a happy life. Don’t let your neighbor’s expensive car, push you to live beyond your means, and put on a fake smile, deceiving people that you are living great, while you know that you are struggling to make ends meet.

In Africa and other countries around the world, many are believed to be sick of HIV but scared to go and see the doctor, because they aren’t ready to be told they have contracted HIV or Aids.  They rather prefer to hide their problems with a fake smile, forgetting that no one drinks medicine on the behalf of a sick person.

To pretend that everything is okay, while suffering, is not good for our health, we must, therefore, confine our problems to those close to us for help and solutions. That’s the only way we can overcome and defeat our problems.

Euthanasia: Why The Pope Quiet If He Is Against Death Penalty?

Pope

In his recent tour in the United States of America, Pope Francis, who is an opponent of the death penalty pled for clemency for a woman on the death row, who allegedly killed her husband in 1997. Despite the Pope’s plea, the US State of Georgia executed Kelly Gissendaner. The Pope’s action shows his love for humanity and respect for mankind. The question is: Why Pope Francis hasn’t made any effort to stop Euthanasia, since many consider it as murder?

Many are born with serious birth defects, including other life threatening diseases. As we grow old, we encounter health problems, often robbing us of our happiness. In this painful situation many wish to die instead of living.

Thanks to the amazing progress of modern technology, this has brought comfort to mankind in every field, including medical. There is life saving machines to ease our pains, incubators to save premature babies etc; but I haven’t heard of any doctor or scientist putting breath into a dead man’s nostrils to bring the person back to life.

Apart from Biblical account which indicates that Jesus, Elijah, Elisha, Paul and Peter raised the dead, no doctor or scientist has been able to do that, so why do some doctors take the life of terminally ill patients to avoid suffering?

When one kills a person, he faces a murder charge. In this case when a person is not dead, but because of suffering or chronic disease, someone helps, in any means to support or speed up his death, the person is also a murderer. If many will take certain abominable things into consideration, this world would have been a better place.

From historical times, man has dominated man to his own injury, ignoring the scriptures and doing whatever seems good to him, which results have been fatal and disastrous. Euthanasia has got nothing to do with ‘Dying in dignity’ it is murder. Euthanasia is now legal in many countries, including Belgium and the Netherlands.

Euthanasia in Belgium is reportedly “out of control” with a 500% increase in cases in ten years and currently there are plans to extend euthanasia to children and people with dementia.

“It’s the choice of the sufferer to die,” is it that calls for euthanasia? But who are you to play God and terminate one’s life? I tell you the truth, there shouldn’t be any hope that this world will be better place. We are in a very dangerous, sinful world and those responsible can’t escape the wrath to come, whether they do it for money or ‘dignity.’

A Special Interview With The Idi Amin Of Belgium, King Leopold II

Blender 4

Journalist and author Joel Savage, interviews the White Idi Amin of Belgium, King Leopold II

I believe everyone knows or heard of King Leopold II. He was one of Belgium’s greediest and bloodthirstiest kings, who killed and maimed over ten million Africans, including children, during the colonial era in Congo. Despite that there isn’t any statue of Adolf Hitler for killing six million Jews, Belgium built a statue and named streets after this lunatic. So I took a trip to the Neo-Gothic Church of our Lady in Laeken, Brussels, where all the monarchs, including Leopold II, are buried, for this exclusive interview.

Joel: King Leopold, how do you feel about this interview?

Leopold: I need peace in my grave. How can you interview a dead man?

Joel: If the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (The Mormons) could baptize the dead, then I could possibly interview a dead man.

Leopold: Please allow me to sleep peacefully in my grave. Why are you disturbing me?

Joel: You know what you did. You rendered thousands of villagers homeless, by putting fire into their huts, amputated the hands and limbs of children, mutilated the genitals of fathers and killed wives of husbands, for the greed of rubber and the desire to be the world’s richest king, yet your country praised and applauded your crimes and named streets after you. That’s not the end; you have a statue in addition. Are you happy in your grave for such horrendous crimes you committed?

Leopold: Even if I am not happy at all in my grave, I wasn’t the one responsible for my statue, because I didn’t ask anyone to build my statue and named streets after me.

Joel: Who are you trying to shift the blame to? For remembrance and honor, wreaths are laid at cemeteries for people, including soldiers that sacrificed their lives for your country, but the innocent blood of Africans you shed and the children you murdered are being mocked with your statue. Black Lives Matter, do you think Belgium can mock the dead and be a happy country?

Leopold: I want to repeat it once again if you didn’t hear me. I didn’t tell my country to build statue and name streets after me. They did it out of ignorance and foolish pride. They should be intelligent enough to know that I don’t deserve such statue.

Joel: Many believe you are not human, because during that time span, greed and power propelled you to commit the most serious crimes you deserve to go down the gallows, but nobody gave a damn for what you were doing because everybody else did almost the same. African soil was cut into pieces and confiscated by the foreigners. The way of thinking at that time was black people can be used for everything as a resource and as a disposable and Africa is ours. So who is the ignorant or the one who lacks wisdom, when you wore a sheep’s clothing deceiving the world as a good king, yet on a killing spree?

Leopold: Don’t let me start scratching my head when there isn’t any itching. I have had enough in my grave, tell my people to break down my statue and denounce the name of the streets named after me, because I can feel that my country is doomed because of this evil thing they did.

Joel: Your country is stubborn like a He-goat. They are confused because it’s one of the divided and difficult countries to rule in the world. Their confusion is very deep that they can’t even differentiate good from evil.  They have thousands of journalists but none has written about this because they are not Africans. They don’t care.

Leopold: You have said the right thing, but be careful, else you will be an enemy. I know my people; they are pretenders and bad just like me.

Joel: I want to be an enemy Leopold because that makes me an important person. When you are not important no one hates you in the society.

Joel: I have two questions from my mentor, Professor Johan Dongen for you. The first question is: You killed over ten million Africans, including children. Do you think there will be enough Africans left to kill by your grandchildren?

Leopold: Don’t bring my family into this. I did all those evil things alone.

Joel: I need to bring your family into this, because wickedness and evil acts can be inherited by family, including grandchildren.

Joel: Professor Dongen’s second question is: You always carry a sword on your statues and portraits. He may like see it. Will you give it to him if it’s in your grave?

Leopold: That sword is cursed, because of the evil things I did with it. If I give it to anyone, it will bring more disaster upon Belgium.

Leopold: Before I leave, please ask God to forgive me and let the same God touch the heart of my people that I don’t deserve those statues and streets named after me. If they are wise enough, then they should break down the statue or keep it, because the chicken always comes back home to roost.

Joel: Are you sure you know God King Leopold and you did this? Anyway, thank you for granting me this interview.

Leopold: You are welcome.

I am Living But Inactive

Skeleton

I am neither in jail nor dead. I am still living but inactive. As a fearless critic writer, when ever I am not online for a number of days, many think something terrible has happened to me. I am not scared of anything terribly happening to me, because what ever happens to me benefits me. I don’t run away from fights, because you will live to fight another day.

My wife, the children and I, moved into a new house, which has been our dream for many years. God lifts those who lift up themselves. That’s one of my plans for a better integration and education for my children. I haven’t been online over a week now, because I have no access to internet until September 16, 2015.

I have missed reading the articles of my favourite writers and bloggers at WordPress, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I will be back very soon to spread the provocative, taunting, educative, nightmare and arrow piercing flesh articles. You can only like the articles of Joel Savage, if you are friend of ‘Truth.” I am happy to have friends that live in the realms of truth. Thank you all my followers.
