Today is a special day all over Nigeria. It is children’s day. The children are having fun all over and trying to give themselves hope of a better tomorrow. Parents, teachers, non-governmental institution on children initiative and government alike, are today giving children assurance that they are the future leaders. Today in Nigeria, we are trying to reinforce believe in children without consciously planning for the children and their future. This is evidence in the type of welfare package for their parents, health care facilities, standard educational system, social amenities, community development, moral and value adding standard, science and technology enhancement especially in African countries etc.
Our children have dreams in them that they want to accomplish and dreams do come true. They have music in them that they have to sing before they leave this world. We MUST allow them to express freedom to live their dreams. THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA were once children with great dreams. Today, America is God’s own country because children like Vanderbilt, Rockefeller, Carnegie, J.P Morgan, and Henry Ford expressed and lived their dreams.
I HAVE A DREAM BY ABBA
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope, with anything
If you see the wonder, of a fairy tale
You can take the future, even if you fail
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream, I have a dream.
Our children must be supported to achieve their dreams as we celebrate them today. Parents should teach their children Godly values and financial intelligence for a better and sustainable financial future because their dreams need character and money. Children don’t give up on yourself, go for your dreams, activate self-motivation always and your future will be great.
We can help to remove children from the streets and major roads in Africa by providing for their basic needs. Yes we can!
