Once we are in possession of something, that thing is considered to be ours. Any thing that belongs to someone is for him or her. But I know you must have heard some people especially parents saying that they are working for the future of their children both born and unborn. They toil day and night just for the sake of their children. This particular attitude is found mostly among the elder ones but is very rare among the young generation.
As a young person or a youth, is there anything you are working on presently that will not benefit you but for the generation to come after you? Is there anything in your possession that you consider to be yours that you can’t afford to lose it for the others? It is funny to hear some of the reasons the younger generation gives why they have refused to work for the generation behind them.
It is not too late to work for the future generation. We can learn from Greta Thunberg. This girl is just 16yrs old and what she is fighting for is something some persons considered to be above her capacity and age. But she is on it and doing it with passion despite the inconveniences.
