Keeping Hope in Trying Times.
by Atim Annette Oton,
editor and publisher,

We continue to print in a market that is contracting and our mission this issue is to highlight people and some issues that we all need to come to terms with. Times are hard, but we are enduring people and as difficult as it seems, things will change for the better.

I hit a milestone in February - 40. Yes, historic, and simply spectacular. I am and have been very much my own person for most of my life...it is in full part due to my parents and to the education I have hard, formal and other wise. Forty is supposed to be dramatic, I left Lagos two days before my birthday from 94 degree sub-Saharan sun to Brooklyn’s 16 degree cold. Yikes - that’s enough drama.

I guess I should celebrate, but I have been celebrating life most of my everyday existence. I was advised to bask in the day and enjoy this decade - it is a remarklable experience. 40 is fabulous. I am where I need to be and thrilled at what is to come. I think I have known that since I became 23, when I had my perceived “30’s” crisis. I went off to grad school in England...it was the best decision of my life. It got me to see the world differently, experience life and to dare to do everything I have wanted to since.
