“…………………..Man is a being created with limitations, knowing this is one way you will leave a happy life because its then that you will know that you’re not God but man. This means that the ultimate in life is not what you see, desire or touch but what you’re made of and here I mean destiny.
The definition of man is not poverty, wealth, power, children, academic excellence etc. The definition of man is his/her value. Whether rich or poor, bright or dumb, lame or right all men are created for the infinite. They are created for greater heights; the destiny of man is God” See: Kamurinde John on THE SLAVERY IN MODERN EDUCATION
Bavubuka! let’s agree to disagree, there 10 things you will never see in your life time:
Whereas God leaves everywhere you will never see Him because your man and He is God. Though the bible says God is made in our image, it does not say we are God. Thus, man is not God and no one has ever seen God.
2. MAMA FIINA IN CHURCH.
What? Its un believable. Ba dear! Tukirize nti tekisoboka? Nga she is doing what? So, for those specialized in making miracles happen, you have a long way to go.
Man can never see the intentions of other fellow man. Whereas we can contemplate or speculate on the intentions of our friends and enemies, we can’t ascertain their real intentions.
4. EVERY THING.
Man will never see everything in the world. This is because the number of things in the world are more than the time you have to live. For that matter my brother and sister see what you can see and leave what you can’t see. Just be contented.
My brother and sister you will never see equality, that is something you have to get used to. We can agree that inequality can be reduced but equality can never be achieved because we are human beings with inherent contradictions.
6. PUTIN BEING DRAGGED TO PRISON.
Boss! This is the most powerful man in the world, the leader of the largest nuclear power. Dragging him to prison is something beyond imagination. So, lets agree that you add this in one of the impossibilities you know.
7. A DIRECT WAR BETWEEN AMERICA AND RUSSIA.
Ba boyi! we have anticipated this war in vain. Media has speculated on the same but it has not materialized into direct combat. I think it can mean the end of the world. So, brothers and sisters just forget about. It will never happen. maybe it will happen when our reckless and fire branded generation gets in power. But let’s be honest to ourselves, this will never happen.
8. THE BLACK PRESIDENT OF CHINA.
What? I can’t imagine…can you even think about it? We were all happy when Obama was erected the president of USA. It was as if heaven was nearing the earth. It was something nearing the impossibility of equality you know! Something memorial. My fellow brothers and sisters the 2008 miracle will never happen in China at least not in your life time. Get used you see!
9. THE POPE’S WEDDING.
My brothers and sisters that enjoy celebrity weddings forget about this. It will never happen let us not even argue about it. Even if you spend 100days in prayer with Pastor Bujjingo you will never see it. Okay you can tell your pastor to pray for the same to happen…. boss! this won’t happen in our life time so lets even forget about it.
10. A UGANDAN ON THE MOON.
Look at the quality of all your leaders, look at your selves and your dreams. Access them and you will establish that by the end of your life no Ugandan would have even ever dreamt of embarking on that money.
In conclusion, there are many things that we may want or have anticipated to happen but won’t happen because of one reason or another. In this writing I attempt to share with my fellow youth my simple world view. To make them lough, dream but also be contented about life.
