With the technology era especially in the developed countries

and less in developing countries, socializing has been an alien

among people. Most of them don’t even know their next door

neighbour. As a result, we fail to note the culprits in the

community and at the end of the day they are listed as most

wanted terrorist or even attack us. The saying “Everyone for

himself and God for us all’ has its roots especially among the

Kenyans living in urban areas. Although it has its advantages,

the disadvantage over shadow them..

This has been transferred to our children who prefer being

glued on a seat than go out and play with friends. The effect

is more since its the facebook and twitter era.They have

more friends in the social network whom they have never seen

each other but talk and share alot. At the end of the day,

their bodies become weak due to lack of exercises and their

eye ache or have a dull view of things. Technology is not

everything. someone said that technology will over power

paper but a few months ago, Venezuela lacked tissue on their

shelves and had a long day importing.

And the situation becomes even worse since their parents,

who are to be good examples, fall under the same or even

worse. They are always at work and in the evening when they

are to rest they carry the whole office at home fighting with

deadlines and competition. The children who see them as role

models remain with no choice.How are these children going to

met their life partners? On the internet? How/when are they

going to learn to live like humans and not beasts? It is time

to go to our ‘original self’, go to our traditions and culture.

Its time to disconnect to connect. TAKE IT OUTSIDE!
