The reason why we ought to live today to the fullest has been vastly discussed and reasoned out. I offer no further thought to that. There always will be a messiah championing for that as penned by Rudyard Kipling in “IF” …..

“If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!………”

It however is true that people have to learn when their time has come to hung up their boots. As the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:11…..When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things….. It symbolizes maturity an acceptance of new responsibilities and roles. To again quote, this time the epic ‘Desiderata’ ….”Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth”
Most people don’t grow up. Most people age. They acquire driving licenses , honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. That my friend is aging.

There is a certain outfit calling itself Bunge la Mwananchi on FB. I don’t know how I started following these ridiculous upstarts but before I un-follow them, I will give them my two cents worth. I choose to write this as a conscientious objector to the open abhorrence and antagonism displayed against certain communities on this forum. An aversion to a people due to their beliefs, ethnic orientation, and or political stance is borne out of an ignoramus and a shallow psychology. It is a nuisance portrayed by malevolent and naive persons whose world experience is as puerile as it is sophomoric. Any repugnant soul wishing to spread this misanthropy better direct it to yourself. I will tell you for free, you are a petty, and contemptible weakling who can’t face his own demons, so you choose to hide behind an anonymous Facebook wall. Why don’t you come up with revolutionary ideas for progress, or just shut yourself up in your small unhinged existence and count your toes coz I doubt you ever left kindergarten.
