Deputy Ambassador of Sierra Leone and various organizations eulogize Lawyer Sadu Mohamed Bah
Death is inevitable, everyone is going to die, “It doesn’t much matter whether you die at thirty or at seventy, what matters is the legacy you leave behind for posterity to emulate and remember.” Whatever you do in your life it won’t matter in a couple of years, people will forget you and what you have done throughout your life. Millions of people will go on living their happy lives after someone’s death and then eventually they will die too. (Photo: at the eulogy for Lawyer Sadu Bah)
