Two or one month before the Xmas, the globe is getting ready about God’s birth celebration. Although, let us be cleared that nobody really knows which day or month God is born. How we end up to celebrate his birth on the twenty fifth of December,you can do the research as I believe that to find out about God’s and seek his face, is like trying to reach the sky.
Back to the point of my articles, my message is about Xmas tree. Yes, if we can afford to buy one with it condiments to make it even prettier; we just go and buy it. We are excited about having that Xmas trees in our living room. Indeed, if we have children, nieces and nephews to come over, and as a good auntie, mother, father, Godfather and God mother, we want to get it right.
So what we do to get it right? We start to plan ahead, where to buy that special Xmas trees. We get the best decoration that we could found across the city. We are giving our times to search that perfect goodies. We set a specific budget to make sure that our children, our nieces and nephews is going to enjoy with great expectation. There is nothing wrong to do that, it does show that we do care, that we want to make the best of that festivity season and to always remember it as our best Xmas ever as our children reach the adult life.
Then we have the ideal of the best Xmas trees for our fellows, our family, and our friends. In short sentences; we want to show off. Once more, we put lot of energy to gain that special intention and be the centre of everything. Most of the times, we do get that special “Wow, your Xmas trees is gorgeous”. I will not deny that I would love to hear that kind of compliment. It will put the smile on my face; for the short period thought.
All of those are pretty charming, entertaining, and exciting. We all do have that motivation to do things right. Then we arrived at the end of our festivity, time to say goodbye to our Xmas trees.
Unfortunately, the motivation and give respect on how to say goodbye to our Xmas trees is totally disappointing. The beauty we had while we bought was kind of fairytale before the twenty fifth of December, was indeed our beautiful Cinderella bed time story. The love to make it right has gone. The care to that lovely tree is vanished. The goodbye to that tree is cruel, dry, and cold.
Why start to do something when you are not able to finish it to end?
I meant when you start from A, common sense, finish it to Z; not half way through. I am shocked to see those trees thrown away in the street like there is not an appropriate compactor to dump them. It is sad to know that those people who do such act, they are not what you think they are, in fact they are mature, professional with knowledge of “Lead as example”. Alas, they are not at all good leaders to be followed.
Then, we wonder why our street is so dirty? We blame the adolescents, the teenagers, but in reality if we take time to observe what going on around our street, our neighbour, our parks and backyards. We are our own main cause of how mess our street is. And when the adolescent sees that the adults doesn't care, of course, they will say to themselves “Why we should care?” or “Why bother?”. Don’t get me wrong but I, you, they, we are definitely going to have the same negativity attitude while we see people don’t even give damn care about what is ours.
The street is belonging to the public; therefore everyone should put their best to keep it clean. We all paid our tax for that street, but that is not an excuse to each of us to mistreat our road just because of our laziness to take the extra mile. There is not excuse to each individual to not give some care to any type of items, products that we think it out of use, as even if we want to put that old jumper in the bin, still, some of our money, memories and love are part of that. So why not give a proper goodbye with praise.
Good things can be done. Anyone can participate so that we can live in beautiful city. Anyone can share their ideas on how to lead our generation to carry the beauty of the earth that was given to us. And yes, it can be done if each of us does our part.
What is your thought, is this a fact or scandalous?
