Stand up as a member of society and do something about it.

13 January 2012, 11:01

 

Stand up as a member of society and do something about it.

 

 

There are errands confronting us as a society and that need we as a society to contest them.  We look through our windows with our Unimpaired judgment and observe a man beating a woman like he is thrashing a drum yet we treat such incidents as if nothing has happened. Some elders will even act as spectators and applaud the fight on.  We pass by teenagers stoned walking in and out of taverns but we sack it as disobedience. Some adults will even smoke and drink with them.


We cheer old crooks and hoot while they spin their stolen cars yet we sham as if everything is alright. It is shockingly shocking that some of them are seen as role models likewise some even accumulate some of their deeds and money.

 

While your neighbors kids are anguish, goes to school bare footed on daily basis even in winter and your kids have more than enough pair but you won`t even purchase one pair for them. Teenage pregnancy increased exponentially and parents say nothing about it. Our lovely sisters have turned out to be baby manufacturing machines and the supreme we as society do is to make fun of them. We expound about social mandate on our cherished society yet we don`t do anything about small things that are captivating place underneath our muzzles.

                                                                                                      

This is the time; were society should take full responsibilities of things that took place on our eyes. We can`t stop crime if we entertained it by buying stolen goods. If something’s are wrong, then do something about it. These things distress us as society. Their not an individual problems but it is public glitches thus, let’s approach them as a society.
