    This just reminds you why America is the greatest country in the world right now – they have their priorities right. I said right now because my prayer is in time we will get ours right too and be right up there with (hopefully in my lifetime). May Nigeria become a country and we, a people that value life – every single Nigerian life, but especially those that are vulnerable (children, the poor, the old and the weak), in Jesus’ name. God bless and keep Jimmy and his family.
