“Show me a society that embrace good moral values, and I will show you a society free from extreme social vices.”~ anonymous.
In a decade-plus, the nation has indeed seen the other side of “wealth”, from the extravagant lifestyle of most youth indulging in fraud-related endeavors.
The regular system for one to build capacity towards making a living had been thrown to the dogs by most youths.
Gone were the days we pride ourselves on attaining academic laurels to enable a brighter future.
Today, society has overrated “money”, in surpass of good virtues such as diligence, integrity, trustworthiness, industriousness, and walking in Godly precepts.
The media in some way have failed towards addressing this disturbing trend.
We accept and project the lifestyle of some of these guys engaging in dubious means to make a living.
The youth has been exposed to that sense of “having the means to an extravagant lifestyle”.
It looks attractive, they crave for it, and as a result, makes strenuous efforts towards achieving it by foul our crook means.
Need I say least, but perhaps the incidence at Kasoa should give some advocacy group a sense of “reawakening”.
Gambling is on the ascendency with a chunk of the youth chasing, non existing cash, one that exposes them to all forms of risks and other tendencies.
Money indeed answers all things, but money gotten by ill means will definitely cause a lot of mess in the near future.
For the sake of posterity, we must nip this disturbing trend in the bud before it escalates; as we’re beginning to witness.
May God help our nation Ghana.
Okay Ghana extends our deepest condolences to the ten years old deceased.
May God bless our homeland Ghana.
It is well!
