As we start our Sunday here’s a piece by one of our students that provokes thought and contemplation:
Everyone desires a change in life, school, place of work and the world at large, which is a good thing but, we fail to realise that change has got to start from every individual. According to Mahatma Gandhi ‘we must be the change we wish to see in the world’.
Some students or teenagers find it such a pleasure to play on the intelligence of their parents or teachers or adults, doing same to their colleagues or those they are older than.The funny thing is… these same people are so prompt to detect and criticise others in higher positions who do the same thing they do. They call them cheats and say they are corrupt. Sorry to say, but you are no better than these people they are condemning.
Some people cheat during test or exams. Others steal people’s stuffs and you claim you are “keeping it for the person”. Sorry to shock you, but you are no better than those who are behind bars, no matter how “small” you think it is.
Every criminal you see out there started practising knowingly or unknowingly at a stage of their lives with these things you tag “normal” or “small”. And if care is not taken you might end up being like them or worse.
We all know the difference between white and black as well as good and bad or right and wrong, we need to shake off those habits or traits that make us stink. We are the leaders of this generation; it is no longer “leaders of tomorrow”; that tomorrow has come, so wake up and set your acts right.
Having all A*s doesn’t count if you are nothing to write home about morally. Learn to live a life of balance.
BE THE TRANSFORMATION YOU HOPE FOR….
BE THE BEST YOU CAN YOU BE AT EVERY POINT IN TIME….
BECOME A BETTER YOU….
