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!
