MISERY AT ITS PEAK: Father who carried his sleeping daughter while selling pens (PHOTOS)

I stumbled upon the above picture of a Syrian father who carried his sleeping daughter on his shoulder in Beirut while selling pens and I decided to share with the hope that the pain and helplessness on the father's face shocks people out of their reality-dodging coma.

Heartbreaking photos? We probably don't even know the half of it. He is one of the "lucky" ones who made it out alive in Syria...and with a living daughter too!

My first thoughts: even if someone was kind enough to buy all the pens he had, how much would it amount to and how long can that money cater for him and his daughter?

Then I asked myself: Do you see how he's trying to make a cosy cradle for the daughter by clutching his fists? Aint you humbled by the fact that he tries to sell to earn even in misery? Yet I stay complaining about the smallest of things. I finally found a hero and now I am truly humbled.

Only a parent can give this kind of love to a child in times like this and I wish for all hope, safety and restoration for this family.

Peter Bello: Burial Slated for Today in Calabar, Body Still Held by Lagos State Coroner + More Info

The burial of Peter Bello, co-pilot of the ill-fated Bristow helicopter, is slated for today, August 20 at the Hawkins Road cemetery in Calabar, Cross River State.

But the Lagos State Coroner has bluntly refused to release his body to be flown down to Calabar for the scheduled burial for undisclosed reasons. This has caused agitation and call for the release of his body on social media.

Recall that the recovered bodies of the handsome 26-year old co-pilot, the American first pilot Joseph Wyatt and the other four were deposited at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, mortuary for autopsy.

Peter Bello and Joseph Wyatt were conveying 12 oil workers from an oil rig station when their helicopter plunged into the Oworonshoki, Lagos area of the lagoon just five minutes before landing.
