Hey people,i trust your week went well.It's the start of another weekend and i can already see some people doing the azonto. *side eyes Toinlicious* There's going to be serious celebration this weekend because corp members passed out yesterday.Meanwhile,a friend who passed out too decided to travel today.Probably scared of us popping things i guess.*shrugs* And of course,Miebaka a.k.a Tamie decided she won't come home.So you see,i may not be popping things on corp members passing out after all.It's all good though.
Now,to the main topic of the day.CHILDREN! Yes,i'm not yet married neither do i have any,but i want to talk about children.I love kids,i really do and from all indications,they love me too.I'm certain i'll make a great dad *so help me God*.A few days back i saw an ad on twitter asking people to support a fund raiser for children,and even though ordinarily i would've perceived it as a good idea,i didn't.I can see you raising your eyebrows,but i'll explain why.
All we do as regards children is for them to have a very bright and meaningful future.But lots of our actions conflict greatly with our earnest desires for them.To elaborate this,let me ask you these questions.When was the last time you did what was right completely? When was the last time you stood against illegal dealings? When was the last time you stood against bribe? When was the last time you stood against corruption? When was the last time you followed due process to get what you want? Please don't play the helpless card because we're never helpless as regards these things.Look around our society today and ask yourself what future we're planning the kids.A future where they cannot gain admission to the university without 'wetting' hands? A future where the female among the kids wouldn't pass unless they agree to sleep with their lecturers? Or is it a future where the male of the kids would be provided with guns by politicians to kill themselves with? Or a future where they'd always be suspicious of the person next to them just as we're doing now? All the money in the world won't help these if we don't decide to act now.If funds are raised for them and the situation of our society still remains the same,then it'd be utterly baseless.
So,here's what i thought of.Instead of raising funds for children,let us raise honest and responsible men,women,parents,aunties,uncles,teachers,lecturers,civil servants,politicians,employers,employees etc that'll give them the idea of what humans should look and act like.Have you not seen underage gurls engaging in sexual escapades? What about underage boys who engage in crimes? How did you think those came to be? Now you're getting my point.Children are fast learners and what we show them is what they'd show the world when the time comes.Children are the leaders of tomorrow indeed,but if they end up with the same mentality as us,then they're doomed and the future we want for them is definitely not the future they'd have.I have decided to start working to do things accordingly.To always follow due process and respect the views of others and actually respect their person,religion and beliefs,what will you do?Trust me,it's easy to give money.But money is worthless considering the kind of future we want for them.
PS: Sorry i didn't bring you Poetic Thursday yesterday,the week was very busy but i'll make up.Thank you for understanding.
