We go through life without any manuals safe for the lessons learnt along
the way. Many say that it is better to learn from the mistakes of
others but I believe that some lessons are learnt by personal mistakes.
We’re being subjected to the classrooms for a greater part of our
youthful life,many times without our permission. We’re educated or
taught how best to change and manage the world around us. That is good
and I’m very much grateful to the present system that we have in the
world today.
But my wish is that real life lessons should be brought into the
classrooms if it can. We are not taught how to manage stress or make the
right choices in life. Our teachers don’t tell us whether to fall in
love or how best to hate someone. We don’t learn how to maintain
relationships and forgive one another. We are not taught how to
persevere and pursue our dreams with all our heart. We are simply
instructed on how best to acquire a skill and get a job…not a life. It
brings me near tears when I see graduates struggling to meet up with
their commitments. It pains most especially if your whole hope is
dependent on what you’ve learnt in school.
So I ask,can these be taught in schools? Can our teachers be more like
inspirational speakers who will not only teach but instruct us on true
life lessons that will help us to become better individuals. It is my
wish that everyone who works hard for his life should enjoy the fruits
of his labour. We need more role models as teachers. We need teachers
who will inspire their students to attain the highest definition of
their talents.
This is very much achievable and I know our teachers will
pay attention to these. Help us to become better individuals so that we
can take care of you in your later days. Discipline us. Teach us. Help
us. Instruct us. Make us. We are the reason why you have a job,don’t
make us regret it. Till we get to the Promised Land,I shall be waiting
for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of
grace for the race.
