THE WORDS MURDERED HER :WORDS HAVE THE POWER OF A BULLET

How I murdered my Student.

I was in class that fateful Friday afternoon teaching my students when she raised her hand to ask a question.

I permitted her and she asked a rather too simple question that I supposed she should know the answer.

I had already covered that topic the previous week. ” Will you sit down there! With your Ugly face! Olodo!” was the only answer I gave her.

The whole class bursted into laughter and she looked embarrassed.

I went on with my lesson but felt somewhat guilty over what I had said.

I finished my class and left. On Sunday, I went to Church. The preacher was talking about the tongue and its power.

He spoke about how you could bring others down by what you say.

I remembered what happened on Friday and became guilty. I swore I was going to apologize to her on Monday when I got to the class.

On Monday afternoon, I went to the class but I didn’t see her. I asked after her from her coursemates but they didn’t seem to know who I was talking about.

I then said I was looking for the person I insulted on Friday. “Oh, that’s Joy Sir!

She is not in class today” they answered. Who is her friend? I asked. “Aisha” they chorused.

But Aisha was not in the class either. Suddenly, a girl with Hijab walked in. “That’s Aisha Sir” my students informed me.

Where is your friend? I asked her. “Which one?” She replied without looking at my face. Joy! I said.

The reply shocked me! She is in the mortuary Sir. Mortuary????? Doing what there?? I asked “She died on Friday Sir” Aisha replied.

How come?????? I later found out that after my class on Friday, Joy was hit by a fast moving vehicle.

She was crossing the road absentmindedly probably because of what I said.

” Her burial is on Saturday and you are invited Sir” Aisha continued.

As I stood trying to overcome the shock, Aisha said admist tears ” you killed my friend Sir”. She was right! I should be the murderer!

Some girls in the class were already crying! I didn’t know what to say, whether to apologize to Joy’s friend or Joy’s ghost.

I submitted my resignation letter the next day.

Dear Lecturers and Teachers, please stop insulting your student.

They are in school to learn from you. If they already know, they won’t be in school!

 

Please mind what you say to other people. Are your words bringing life or death to the hearers?

NB: THIS STORY IS A MUST READ AND DOES NOT ONLY APPLY TO LECTURERS AND TEACHERS BUT ALL OF US THAT COME INTO CONTACT WITH HUMAN BEINGS: CUSTOMERS, STUDENTS, PARENTS, MATES, FRIENDS AND WHAT HAVE YOU?

Let’s be very mindful of how we address one another. Thank you.

10.LIFE’S LESSONS TO PONDER ABOUT

1. No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement.
2. Give others the privilege to explain themselves.
3. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others; you can never see the two sides of a coin at once.
4. Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.
5. Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded but because they value friendship above money.
6. Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but because they understand the concept of responsibility.
7. Those who apologize first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the people around them.
8. Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing but because they see you as a true friend.
9. Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.
10. Those who take out time to chat with you, does not mean they are jobless or less busy, but they know the importance of keeping in touch.
One day, all of us will get separated from each other; we will miss our conversations of everything & nothing; the dreams that we had.
Days will pass by, months, years, until this contact becomes rare.
One day our children will see our pictures and ask ‘Who are these people?’ And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say:

‘IT WAS THEM THAT I HAD THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE WITH
