Young people, work together and feel proud

2016-10-26 06:00

TODAY, we are living in a world where respect, standards and values have changed a lot, and it is so sad to see that some people in our country have become disrespectful, unruly lawbreakers and have no respect for authority.

The young generation are the future leaders of tomorrow. Some will become doctors, lawyers, scientists, nurses and someday even presidents of our beautiful South Africa.

People should motivate and encourage each other and help the young generation believe in themselves and help them to achieve their dreams and goals so they can be successful in life.

It is also the responsibility of young people to learn from those who are older the important values and principles such as respect for family, people and those who are in authority over them (elders and peers).

Those children who are still at school and university must start focusing their minds on studying and being successful and thinking about their future.

All the young people of South Africa, the future leaders, come on, work together as a team to make your country united as one, and strive with determination and harmony to make this a place of excellence and stop fighting with each other.

It’s not going to help you achieve anything at all.

Feel proud and honoured that you have the privilege to live in a country like South Africa and someday own your own business and fulfil your dreams and ambitions.
