Over forty eight years ago, a child was born, he grew up with a lot of potentials, he became very intelligent and highly knowledgeable. He became a threat to his mates. With the great destiny the future is surely very bright!
Extremely versatile, courageous, physically tall, huge, dark complexioned, a dream of every young lady. He is the subject of discussion amid maidens. They are ready to do anything to marry this young ambitious man.
Life became very beautiful for this young man with the help of his great mentors and good spiritual leaders guiding him on what step to take per time being a man of vision and purpose. The future is certainly very bright because everything he touched became successful. Everybody wanted him to be a close friend.
Soon afterwards, he couldn’t separate good friends from the bad ones. He allowed youthful exuberance to catch up against him. He stopped following the advice of his mentors and spiritual leaders but instead heeded to the voice of the strange women around him. Before anyone could say Jack Robinson, the future became very bleak. All his wealth disappeared; he stood at the mercy of donor agencies. His children started carrying arms against each other; some neglected him to be called children of other men. His wives were being driven away with juicy promises in his presence by neigbhours whom he used to feed; brothers and sisters ignored him while friends left him to his fate…
Then one morning, he woke up a great while before day break and strolled to a lonely place to think about his life. He remembered his past and like the prodigal son discovered what he did wrong. He became shameful about himself and suddenly, strength came upon him as it used to be, he regained consciousness. He caught the picture of the glorious picture once more, determined to regain all that he had lost, he stood up and marched into the city to rebuild the fallen walls of his life. The sun is rising back…

Despite the fact that detractors told Nehemiah that the task of re-building the fallen walls was impossible, Nehemiah was determined to make a change, all the effort of Samballat and Tobiah could not sweep him out of the great city walls that he saw even before its construction. He was living large as the Kings cupbearer but he left all that to rebuild his country. The best that we know about his genealogy is that he is the son of Hacaliah. No fantastic history but he initiated the rebuilding of the walls.
