    Poor guy needs some serious medical attention, clearly he is screaming for Help in the way of a sanitarium. Yes, nostalgia delusions of making it big in the America’s streets paved with gold, everyone “doing well” at home in the mazerland. Add to that a forlorn sweetheart Mr Saad has promised to bring to the promised land, after moving her from his home village to the big capital Addis. In the hope she may acclimate her self quicker to the gold life of the promised land in a Addis a smaller version of America.I say all this to garner some sympathy for a dude amongst many such dudes, who’s dreams have been frustrated,deferred by the nightmare, the relentless pace of paying bills and taxes,or just plainly sick.

    Take heart oh sweetheart my love in Addis, for you might not see the promised land of gold, but as sure as the sun sets in a the diesel fumed filled air of our beloved capital Addis, i might be coming sooner than you think!

    It is a very unfortunate incident, this shows that how we need to pay closer attention to the issue of mental disorder in our communities.It is high time to take psychiatric/psychological as a disease and not as a stigma.

    My prayer goes to the safety of my president as he goes about performing his duties and the young person who is seeking help and yet who chose the wrong approach.
