Nigerian author Ben Okri read a letter with his family

NIGERIAN AUTHOR, BEN OKRI, SAYING:"My my letter to the Earth really is asking the Earth to chastise us. It's an unusual angle to take, but I have become a bit fed up of the human race inflicting unending suffering on itself, on its people and on this planet.
