It is never too late for anyone to discover his/herself in life. Discovering this talent of writing makes me feel elated...
It is yet another day for the women's day celebration
All over the globe, however the women of the island
For the past ten years have been marking that day
By meeting at a designated venue to discuss about
Myriads of issues ranging from local to global and preferring the likely solutions to be those problems.
This is how they used to mark their day in the island
When the summit started about ten years back
Not many people considered that the program would
Not pack up like many others, but it has not packed
Up, yea, the uncovered grounds have been covered
Now it has become international colloquium in which
People from all over the world do come to grace the
Occasion. They started the colloquium at a small hall
Owned by one of the women, but about three years ago
The venue has been changed to the island's hall
The new venue has been chosen because it is the
Biggest hall within the island and it has many facilities
That people from advanced climes would prefer a standard
Hall has. As from the time of the change, the organizers
Have been ensuring that nothing stops them from using the venue
To prevent lapses, they used to book for the venue
Months before the day. Last year's event could not be
Forgotten easily because there were distributions of
Things for the widows, widowers, orphans, and scholarships
Of varying degrees were awarded to people.
To incorporate people from other countries and continents
The organizers have used a raffle draw by
Randomly selecting emails of people from far and nigh to give them money as one of the beneficiaries of the program so that they will also be touched by them.
People who have benefited from the celebration
Keep talking about the event till this day that
They want to mark another women's day globally.
Everyone trusts that this year's event would be better than last year's event in all ramifications.
The town hall to be used for the program is gradually filling up, as people from all over the
Island and other invited guests from other countries and islands have been arriving at the venue of the colloquium.
For the past four weeks, the security of the island
Has been beefed up because of different figures; international and
Local dignitaries who have shown their interests
Of gracing the occasion this year. Initially
Many of them have put the organizers of the program in suspense.
Because they have not categorically stated whether
They shall grace the occasion or not,
But this changed about five weeks ago
When secretary of the organizing committee
Started receiving messages from those invited.
Messages pouring in from far and near have
Shown that they will be coming for the event
At least about 85% of the messages received show
That while it is the belief of many that there will
Yet be others who will change their minds.
Having discovered this, some members of the organizing committee
Have put on their thinking caps to know what has
Brought about the changes in people's mind to
Desire to attend the program. Since the inception
Of thr program about ten years ago
There have been no positive response like those
Received this year of many who have said they
Shall be available for the program. Indeed those
Who said they have engagements before have cancelled
Their engagements to attend the event.
This sudden change of mind by the invited guests
Baffled them and they are brainstorming on knowing
The reason because there have been no changes
To the guest speakers neither other dignitaries
They desire to know this so that their reports would
Contain that for those who will be in the position to
Organize other editions to put that into use or modify
It to get more people for the event in future.
However hard they think their reasoning failed them.
