Children and their inspirations

Honorine Ngenwi
Posted November 4, 2020 from Cameroon

When a child is born, what is his/ her first reaction or his/her first language?, (cry). Do you know why he/she cries? Food for taught. Along the line while growing up, parents are preparing for their education, and when they reach the age of going to school, their first expirence is when the have gone to nursery school. They cry for the first few weeks and then become use to. When they have gone up to the level of primary four, you hereing them saying "mum I will buy you a car and dad I will build you a house". That is their first imagination. At the level of primary six and if you asked them what they would like to be in future some doctors, farmers, pilot etc. If you asked them why they want to become one of those all of them will say because I want to buy a car and build a house and take good care of mum and dad when they are old. But today where are their inspirations taking them, Nowhere. Instead what they have in mine has been buried into the grave. Instead of achieving those inspirations, they are being killed by some unknown wicked and heartless people we don't know. What a wicked place we are today. One thing they do not know is that God is watching. Its pain when a parent who hasn't gone to school makes all effort to see that the child goes to school and have a sound education in other to make them proud. The parents use to tell the children that, you will go and study with mine since I am an illiterate. But today there is no school and no child. Its a pathetic think. God bless the parents and may their gentle soul rest in perfect peace Amen.

Hello Honorine,
This is a sad account indeed. I grieve for lost lives and buried dreams. May justice and peace come swiftly.

Hello, sister Honorine,

I hear from you. It is indeed painful on so many levels. Death at old age is painful, but the death of our own children is a thousand times more. I grieve with you on what happened to those innocent children who simply went to school with the hope to dream bigger dreams. That is unimaginably heartbreaking. May God comfort the parents and bring swift justice to the perpetrators.

Thank you for sharing your heart with us. Please stay safe.
