I greet you all in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
I won’t take time to divulge into the moral frailty our country is facing as this will just be a painful reminder to the erosion of the well cultured young Zimbabweans that we have always been known for.
However, I will just do an indication to highlight my petition to you all.
Our young sisters and brothers are being exposed to a bankrupted way of life. Every day there is word in the streets, in the neighbourhood on how the youngsters have gone wild. It is quite disheartening and it pains as this might be passed on to our children. In as much as parents try to bring up kids in a cultured way they are exposed. They meet in schools and we don’t want to imagine how they lure each other into illicit behaviour during lunch, break and/or on their way from school. The exposure is there regardless of how parents can be strict. We can blame it all on the media, television which does not discriminate its censorship as the onus has been directly left on the parents. My petition to the Catholic Church Zimbabwe is BRING BACK THE SCOUTS INTENSIVELY IN SCHOOLS AS IN THE 90s’.
In the 1990s when I was in primary school we had the girl guides, brownies and the boy scouts in school. I enrolled for brownies in grade 2 and that’s when I learnt to be truthful, obedient and cheerful. Thinking of others before oneself. Having been learning at St Pauls Primary School in Gweru, these were the best days of my life. Going for brownies meeting at tender age and being taught the essence of life…
Should these children be brownies at a tender age, we might be able to channel their way of thinking for now and for the future for better.
