Thanking God for the gifts of children, they are the future.
I try not to get passionate about some things, one of which is politics and the ills of the society.
One thing is for sure and that I am not ambivalent about, moral decadence can and will only get worse. Politics will continue to be a dirty game. And as much as I want to believe Nigeria will be great, the journey is indeed long.
"Hundreds of toddlers and children on Sunday took to the streets in Port Harcourt to protest incessant kidnapping of underaged persons in Rivers State". More here
I know the story is a bit dated but am I irrational in my thinking when I say that it should never have happened, it is errant nonsense marinated in gross irresponsibility.
Is it okay that I am here praying that the days of WAI should be implemented again for jus for one day enough for me to go to PH and personally flog the crap out of the adults who followed this todlers protest march.
For the love of cheerios some of this kids are still in Diapers and you are having them carry placards in the hot sun.
The message is clear isn't it: - "We the adult will not fight for you children, we are pot bellied weaklings who are guzzling their future down with a side dish of fatted turkey. You must defend yourself and what best way to get you started than carrying placards when you are still in diapers."
The folks set machinery of kidnapping, somehow manage to negotiate payment and yet claim the kidnapppers are elusive. It does not add up. And this so called demonstration which I believe wholeheartedly to be a bit of (if not totally) propaganda.
Oh please, the kids demonstration is just what we need to stop the kidnapping once and for all, especially when the kidnappers have a heart and are can be dissuaded by seeing the little cuties sweating it out in the sun. Like the kids being targeted by kidnappers are actually the ones carrying placards.
I can just imagine Junior the 3 year old Son of Chief Engineer Anthony Emeritus Paytene of the Glaxonchevmobil company taking permission from his dad to go for a demonstration against kidnapping. Chief Anthony turn and says "yes my boy you can go, make sure you carry your 'superman rucksack' the one I bought for Harrods with some chocolate drinks and hotdogs, and you can go to demonstrate your heart out". Yeah right
Chin up children - selling bread and akara after school hours have not broken you, child molestation and abuse have not broken you. You are still here standing strong. These placards you are now being asked to carry has gotten nothing on you, you will still stand strong.
