Boy & Girl hang each other as parent refuse to let them marry.

 This is a picture of a girl & a boy who hanged themselves on a tree because their parents refused to let them marry each other.

My question is, saying No to their marriage by their parents is enough reason why they should take their lives? Is this Love or Foolishness? What do you think?

This is the national broadcast by Pres. Jonathan on the occasion of Nigeria’s Centenary Celebrations today Wednesday, 26th February, 2014. Read his full speech below
Dear Compatriots,
 1.  I extend warm greetings and felicitations to all Nigerians as we celebrate our nation’s centenary; a significant milestone in our journey to Nationhood.

 2. One hundred years ago, on the 1st of January 1914, the British Colonial authorities amalgamated the Southern and Northern Protectorates, giving birth to the single geo-political entity called Nigeria which has become our home, our hope, and our heritage.

3. I have often expressed the conviction that our amalgamation was not a mistake. While our union may have been inspired by considerations external to our people; I have no doubt that we are destined by God Almighty to live together as one big nation, united in diversity. .............
