The only way to be free-minded is when you think of yourself out of void. People talks about self-realization, but forgotten that one thing must have led a man into his bounded situation. The question now is, what can this thing be? Could it be crime, drug, or lack of informal education? When we do not learn the fundamental aspect of life or whatever we are involved in, definitely we cannot uphold such for long. When you see kids asking question about a new thing, know that the question has rang many times in their minds. A greater advantage can be achieved if we take time to associate with them, create an atmosphere conducive for learning to help them gain knowledge about life, encourage them, and find out what could put them into self-slavery, if care is not taking.
Talking about crime is important with our children and friends, so that it will not become crime later. Parents need to guide their children, we needs to also guide friends and relatives too to live a better life and impact their communities positively. By evil communication the youth tends into crime and criminalities which are preventable if we adequately guide and counsel them in a proper way and manner. We are better off when we talk to them when they are young to mould their mind and shape their future, a great future start with a ready mouth and a listening hear.
Talking about drug abuse, it has become a dangerous trend in our generation, taking more than what the doctor prescribed leads to drug abuse. Self-prescription must be avoided if you do not want to become a statistic, indulging oneself in taking hard drugs can ruin one’s life and you must avoid bad influence from peers and adults. Why should a young man or woman want to be high, what s/he gains from becoming a drug addict? Does it add any value to his/her life? The answer is NO! So it is better to shun drug than to indulge in it.
Drugs can easily destroy lives and has indeed destroys many lives and render them useless in life.
Today’s youth are heavy hemps and cigarettes smokers. Drug consumption damages vital body organs which
can lead to untimely death and unavoidable health conditions. Drug usage when not monitored sometimes
ones into the level of addiction and self-slavery. All hands must be on deck to rescue and help young people and children before it ruin them and destroy the nation at large. Governments at all levels, nongovernmental organizations, faith-based organizations, traditional institutions, schools and community gate-keepers must come to together and effectively collaborate to tame the wildfire of drug abuse in our land.
A greater advantage can be achieved if we take time to associate with them, create an atmosphere conducive for learning to help them gain knowledge about life, encourage them, and find out what could put them into self-slavery, if care is not taking.Casey Casey Lekan Ogunbanwo - National PRO/Ogun State Coordinator
