Last week I read a book by Dag Heward-Mills titled, ‘REMEMBRANCE’ and was dedicated to those of us who forget. I must say that I was really glad at the depth of knowledge and wisdom this reverend minister has impacted on me. We turn to forget our past, we turn to forget who we are and who we were, we forget everything that we get hit so badly by life and all we have to do to get out of some hard and unpleasant situations is to remember. I’ll like to share some lessons from this book with you.
