Tribute to Professor Chinua Achebe

A few days after you're gone, your name is on everyone's lips. I see your pictures everywhere, in papers, magazines, on the internet. Everybody has a story or something to say about you. I can only say that you were a great African voice, inspiring many generations across the continent. I remember reading 'Chike and the River' and 'Things Fall Apart' at about age 12. I liked those books. I do wish I could have had the honour of meeting you. You are indeed a legend, Rest in Peace Sir.
