Using The Young People RIGHT

As far as i’ve seen, no young person is lazy, no young person is washed off of idea no matter how little. The heros that i see today are the young people. Because if their leaders can manage to get every young person to turn on their own little light in their dark rooms, it will power the world in different forms.

Maya Angelou said, that people will forget what you said, forget what you did, but will never forget how you make them feel. In Nigeria, Africa and the rest of the world today, people, most especially the young people, the youths, are filled with so much anger because they feel forgotten, they feel abandoned and unloved by the people they put their entire hope on. What that translates to is violence, the need to take back what they’ve given that wasn’t appreciated, what they have endured that wasn’t commended, what they’ve done that wasn’t rewarded. It brings about great unrest, civil disobedience and unpatriotism.

Though it’s everywhere today but in Nigeria, in fact, in Africa, young people have lost so much that they’ve began asking themselves if they’ve ever been part of the system, part of the government and part of the development plan. Are they structured into the gradual and/or speedy growth architecture? The modern day history as we have seen will say NO! Metrics and indices have shown again and again that even the dumbest person in the world can become the greatest instrument to be used for BUILDING or DESTROYING, as it all depends on what is been put inside of him/her.

What we see today in our world is a system where the rich becomes richer and the poor becomes poorer. A system where children of the rich gets to go to school and that of the poor takes to the street until he commits crime and get jailed for life. A system where the rich use the poor to do and clean up crimes without thinking what the repercussion will be for that poor person. This oppressing system can go on and on until some day, one day, the poor will have nothing to eat but the rich.
As far as i’ve seen, no young person is lazy, no young person is washed off of idea no matter how little. The heros that i see today are the young people.

All that they (the leaders) need to make the greatness in them (the young people) show, is to show them the way and tell them that THEY, CAN DO IT. USING them right, as USING them wrongly will only be catastrophic to the nation, and the world at large.
