GOD!

So this is meant simply to elicit conversation…

Human beings want to understand the origin of everything. In order to understand the origin of ourselves we invented God. The creator of all. The one “being” we attribute everything we cannot understand. The unexplained healing of a man’s illness. The magnificence of a perfect sunset. The fact that a heavy smoker lives to 90. Isn’t “God” then the incredibly simplistic cop out? I don’t understand this therefore someone greater than I am made it happen?

I am a lawyer, a brother, a son, a friend, a neighbor, a confidant, a student of life and I am Kenyan. Became a human rights activist so suddenly sometimes I ask myself if this really is something I wanted. But I have come to embrace it. I have come to realize that I like what I do. That on some level, what I do makes life easier for someone and hopefully, eventually, for myself…Probably the best way to describe me is in the words of Winston Churchill, I am a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.
