Yesterday I did everything possible to clean our compound from neighbor’s rubbish to see clearly reptiles or anything non-friendly like scorpions to kill, otherwise they can kill us. I cut off lowest-smallest branches of neighbors trees which they planted near our wall, but biggest-highest branches impossible to cut without big ladder and suitable skills, meanwhile snakes climbing on neighbor’s trees what is another life threats for us in W. Africa Ghana where we staying like hostages with unjust… I was alright with my terrible squeezing me work and prepared myself for another task - spray the grass in our double compound which we use in quota, for few minutes, suddenly close to me I saw undetectable earlier snake. I was exhausted but ready for action - first I look at location where snake with high speed went off to hide as I used one swear word in high volume because of I had pressure with over hit and lots of my patience - already had bad time, bad mood: neighbors-racists provoking with their political games, they also very wild when we clean their country land and lots of effort I have to spend for our own safety, we cannot advise or give lessons to any of those who far from clear understanding of hygienic life, no one President able to educate those who stuck in past, they having dump in compounds, lots of grass to grow reptiles and diseases, their trees good for farm and for jungle… Anyway, ‘magic’ word worked for plus. I rushed to get stick to hit the place where snake hid with hope to finish for appeared danger, but it hid under hole in concrete, with probability of passing under our cemented wall back to neighbors. My effort was not valuable as I had no chance to kill the snake-intruder which trespassed barrier, time was wasted. When I prepared everything to spray compound grass with more powerful spray which more suitable for any kind of grass, used speed to do it fast with 2 times of 16 lit. (4 Gal.) with plan to finish to spray all compound (with re-filling about 100 lit. in total) - rain started to drizzle, became more heavy, shifted my work for right time. I was no happy as I got new injury, hidden snake which we can meet, unfinished spray, wasted spray as rain clean away my work, left bad effect for my health from spray as odd mask unusable…
Today God is helping us more (forgave my swearing). My son and I look at my yesterday work, then we realized what trouble somewhere can be found: little hole in ground - snake came out and danger around, then we relaxed - birds or wild cats made judgement - killed the snake.
We cannot rest or be happy - we have no tomorrow in country where daily life threats available. but our human rights to have independence, freedom officials/leaders hid in bushes
Thursday is the International Day of Non-Violence which commemorates the philosophy of the late Mahatma Gandhi.
Through his example, Gandhi proved that peaceful protests could accomplish much more than military aggression.
"At this time of increased sectarian violence and the wanton destruction of cultural sites and heritage, it is timely to recall Gandhi’s call for peace and reconciliation, and his warning that, ‘An eye for an eye ends up making the whole world blind,’" said Ban Ki-moon.

My murdered mother’s Birthday was on International Day of non-violence. Domestic Violence ended but life threats not yet. Freedom, justice impossible to have as crime covered in Ghana and we do not have International support and human rights to be free from human trafficking, torture, racism… and we did not get safe political shelter / asylum to have security, home, future… because of we cannot alone fight with corrupted system and organized crime.
