Hi Friends, I hope this letter finds you in good health.
Today, I feel obliged to talk about good mannerism during this corona period.
I have some thoughts I would like to share with you from my observations during these tough times we are in. So, listen to this, it will help you. First, this goes to our ladies, it seems that the pandemic has created a very big chance for you to ruin your manners and future life. Why do you allow your bodies to be destroyed by these young and old boys? Now, the trending thing today is girls getting pregnant from each and every side of the country. Pregnancy can’t bring itself to your body, can it? You go and look for it. I understand that there are some who find themselves in such unfortunate incidences as rape. But a high number of you girls go to look for it. The first thing that brings this pregnancy is through your aimless loitering in the streets. What if you stayed in the house? Will you die of not going to town and maybe to any market center? Okey, an excuse can be that you have been sent. This is the opportunity that you girls use to ruin yourselves. Yes, it can be that you are sent to the shop or somewhere else why can’t you go directly to where you have been sent without standing with a boy on the roadside? The moment you accept to talk to a boy and give him time, exchange numbers and begin accepting his advances, that is how you plan to get pregnant because their aim is not to marry you at this age. So, the question is, if their aim is not to marry you, then what do you think he wants from you? You might say that it’s just friendship. Why did he choose you out of the other girls? Be careful.
The second thing is through your dressing. This is what is killing most of you girls. Take an example of a ripe banana. The one without the pill and the one with the pill, which one goes bad faster? It’s true that it’s the one that has been removed it’s pill. Now, this is the same as you girls who go around walking half-naked and expect to live a peaceful life. No way. Once you dress as if you want to remove all the clothes, it automatically tells what you want, and believe me, God does not deny you what you ask from Him. I know others get permission from their parents but it is not good both to your health and to your security.
Lovely ladies, from the foregone discussion, there are two outcomes. One, you might be pregnant from these loose behaviors. Secondly, you can contract an STI/STD or both. Once you get these things, it is when you start blaming yourself or the boy that you engaged with. Please protect yourself to avoid this thing of “I wish I knew.”
Now to my fellows form three and four boys. I know this information will affect you directly.
To begin with, there is this thing of drugs and substance abuse, which is being brought about by peer pressure. This peer pressure is always associated with the company you keep. having many friends is not a crime; however, it can be very dangerous. Out of the hundreds of friends you have in your neighborhood and online, know that not all of them have good morals and character. Some of them are drug dealers, thieves, and decayed morals. Now through these friends, you now get yourself in the wrong direction.
The issue about drugs has been talked about over and over again and I don’t know why we keep on ignoring. My fellow boys, these drugs that you abuse may taste sweet at this time but later on in your life, they may cause harm to your bodies. They will harm your bodies for the rest of your lives. regarding the consequences of abusing drugs, you know them, and I tell you there is nothing positive about it. They are all negative and worst of all is premature death.
The second thing is crime. This crime may be brought about by the use of drugs. involving in drugs is not caused by drug abuse alone, it also falls back to the company you keep. Boys get this, it is through the crime that you can lose your life. It is also through the crime that you may lose everything interesting in the world. Fellow boys, it’s better you grow to a man than you die a boy.
Remember the following;
∆ Boys grow up but men grow old
∆ Boys eat sweet but men eat their sweat
∆ Boys play but men pray
∆ Boys watch television but men watch their visions
∆ Boys play but men plan
∆ Boys walk with parents but men walk with God
To both boys and girls
Now, to all, my fellow students, there is one thing that has remained and is really ruining our lives, phones. There is no need to speak much concerning this but please, use your phones in the right way, at the right time, and to the right persons, please.
Always know that;
✓ The best student is always visional
✓ The quality of a good student must be ambitious
✓ A good student is a planner
✓ Bright students are passionate and honest
My fellow students, anchor your lives on Christian principles. Be in the presence of God all the time. Rise and move whenever you slip and fall.
Many of us have talents but we don’t want to use them. The talents that we have can help us. Why should you sleep and others are earning through their talents? Please use your talents especially this pandemic time so as to help yourselves and the community at large.
As I finish my letter, know and keep it in mind that it’s your choice to do what is right. If you believe and have hopes, then all shall be well. Life is a journey, not a dream. You have to walk this journey carefully so as to succeed. Remember that your future and your dignity matters!
At all times, BE DETERMINED.
I believe you will share with your friends this letter and let them learn to read it carefully. Inform them to leave me a comment and spread the letter to their social networks.
Thanks in advance and God bless you.
