    Another insightful piece, Tárá. The questions you ask are not the easiest to find answers to, as “who feels it knows it”. Reminds me of a prayer my grandmother used to pray under difficult circumstances. She’d say, “Ọlọ́run má jẹ̀ẹ́ ó yé ẹ”, which meant, loosely, “may God prevent you from understanding”.

    In essence, the prayer was for the person trying to rationalise a troublesome development to be shielded from experiencing the same set of circumstances, for it is only then that one can make sense of the action one perceived to be incomprehensible at the time one first saw it play out in another’s life.
