Short story: A lesson for the new generation

A deep breath half way and a short break at the the hill slope.
A deep breath half way and a short break at the the hill slope.

All that you need will be at the top.

Short story:

One day a stranger came to a village and he told the children of that village


That on the top of a certain mountain that he knew was all the happiness


That they needed. All they would have to do was to follow him and climb this


mountain. The kids said yes and rushed to pack all their belongings. But the


stranger said "leave all that behind kids for all that you'll need, will be AT THE


TOP." The children, stubborn as they are, refused to listen to the stranger so


they packed all their things on their back. As they climbed for awhile, they


started to get tired. Their packs were too heavy so they examined their


bags and got rid of a few things. They continued climbing and again they


begin to experience great fatigue, it was getting harder to climb the


mountain, they were slowed by their packs, so they reexamined it and threw


away a few more things. As they were getting closer to the top, they got


exhausted and could not move another step upward unless they throw away


everything in their bag pack. They deliberated for awhile and threw


everything away with great regret. They then had enough strength to be "AT


THE TOP" And the belongings which they had thrown out, was no longer a regret but


instead a relief, one that signified new beginnings, new ideas and better relations.




Every human being needs inspiration to improve the quality of his or her life. And if


I have inspired you, I'm grateful for that. But nonetheless, we need to know that we


can get a piece of the apple pie of life. If we do not have this then life on this planet


becomes a desolate one, a life of no hope. There are many people who could help bring


this inspirational thought to the world, but they are too engrossed in their own greedy and


selfish needs. Millions of people in this world are educationally ignorant and therefore


are controlled and manipulated by a number of power hungry leaders. If the people of the


world could get a little knowledge on how to organize themselves; they could overthrow these uncaring leaders.




Sometimes in life, we may have to get rid of some old beliefs & tradition in


other for us to move forward. You are the new generation, you are better


than us, you are better than your forefathers. Your job in this society is to carefully examine their


mistakes and make appropriate measures to make sure that you don't repeat


them. On the flip side, you should never be afraid to make new


mistakes, mistakes is that which we learn from. Those who are afraid to be


wrong are also afraid to be right, because they fear of being wrong will always


prevent them from noticing the mistakes which could have helped them strive for perfection.

So my message to the new generation is to question life to the fullest because your parents have made enough


mistakes for you to correct, so please don't let your time goes to waste.


You should always strategize your ideas so that you remained "At the top" because to be there, you must live in the


penthouse of "you mind". And to arrive at the penthouse, you must forever use an elevated thought.


Unity is what gives birth to change, without it they can be no change.

People of different races, cannot say because I belong to this race of people, I am a quality person. Race has nothing to do with the quality of the individual. Money does not beget quality; it only begets that which is material. The so called beauty of the physical form does not mean you have quality. Therefore, True quality is mental and spiritual and can only be evaluated from that stand point.

The ability to create is the gift that out stands the intellectual superiority that us mankind possess over all other species. Although this intelligence is clearly an advantage to humanity, it can also be a disadvantage when guided by greed. A lesson from Sevem Suzuki, a child who is excercising her power of action.

and I believe the last part is so true.but we all know that when parents tell us not to make the same mistake that they did that gives us more reason to make the same mistake why we think so ass backwards i do not know, i remember one day my dad telling me, after i have told you guys not to do certain things and you would do them anyway i would just sit back sometimes and watch you guys run into the same brick wall wondering to himself when we were going to get the idea that what we were doing was wrong, so saying all of that it is good to sometimes let kids make mistakes no matter what danger you see around the corner because some kids are just hard headed and are not going to listen just love them and be there for them, you do not have to condone wrong behavior but you also do not have to critize them and make them feel lower than dirt, nice strory keep hubbing

I believe in educating a child through logical reasoning. To tell a child not to do something without explaining why it's wrong will have no effects.  The moral of the story dictates that sometime in life we must reject some old traditions so that we move forward. The child who has reach this level of comprehension knows how to analyzed a statement. That child is an educated child, one who's been educated by informed parents. Sometime in life a child is as educated as their parents, which can be drawback.  A parent can not teach a child how to reason if the parent himself has none, it's all relative.
