Never get tired of moving on. Just soldier on no matter the circumstances.
It is 12:50am…midnight or morning. Any way you may want to call it. I am supposed to be dead sleep by now, but here I am joining the dots.
I have been thinking why sometimes life is so unfair. Why some people are swimming in riches while others are drowning in poverty.
Others didn’t go beyond grade three and they own the best companies while some who have several degrees are still jobless.
Others started business from scratch and within a short time it became a big company while others still struggle to make theirs better even after years.
The list can go on and on till dawn, but my question still stands: why is life so unfair?
It was a bee hive of activities in all the markets before almost everything turned upside down. The towns were full of life as business men woke up early to meet their targets. All over a sudden, the monster arrived. Yes , the corona virus.
This changed everything. The freedom of movement became a history to be read. New outfit of masks hijacked our comfort of breathing. Expression of love and care was left to mother and baby as no more shaking of hands was allowed. The new lifestyle was difficult to adapt….to continue.
Are our children safe from corona virus..
It is sad that children have been left to go on with their daily activities. They are relating and playing as if covid 19 is a fiction. Schools were closed to keep children safe but it is like this is not working.
When parents go for job, these children are left all alone and they are free to meet with their friends without minding the impact of the pandemic. Most of them are seen not bothering to take the precautions needed. They never use masks nor keep social distance.
My question is…are these children safe? Is keeping them out of school protecting them from being victims?
It has been a long time since schools were indefinitely closed due to Covid 19.
It was a surprise to many as this caught them unaware. How they had to swallow the bitter pill as there was no other option to save the children from the pandemic.
Since then, it has not been easy to stay with children for such a long time bearing in mind that some live in high populated areas.Some of the parents have said it openly why it has been hard to stay with their children for such a long time and it is their prayer this will come to an end soon.
This are some of the reasons they gave:
Children cannot learn by themselves without the help of the teacher. They don’t take parents seriously when they give the assignments . Some of the parents are not aware on what is taught in school. Others know little about the syllabus.
Controlling children has not been easy, This is because they are staying in small rooms and keeping children congested in a room for a whole day is not easy to them.They better go outside where they would have a wider space for their activities.
Some parents are still going to their working places, hence children are left unattended. They(the children)may take advantage of this and engage themselves with immoral behaviours which parent could not advocate for if they were around.
Some children are still too young to understand why they are being told that it is not right to play with their peers.Keeping them in the house all day is not that simple.
Then there are the teenagers who most of the time they feel they are always right. This brings conflict between them and the parents.Sometimes they take advantage of the absence of the parent to do immoral things which could land them in danger.The parents have to deep more in their pockets for the unexpected budget.
It is a prayer to every parent that things will be back to normal soonest. As parents should also know this.
