As it stands, the globe has being in a state of panic as a result of a pandemic known as coronavirus(Covid-19). Apparently, thousands of souls has been lost, may their gentle souls continue to rest on.
However, there’s a more deadly virus silently killing souls, this virus is called “IGNORANCE”. There is a saying that states and I quote “Ignorance is bliss”, but I must confess, ignorance is a disease known to have rendered millions of homes dead and buried. Even our sacred scripture made it clear, Hosea 4:6 “My people perish because of the lack of knowledge”…
The knowledge of God, Self and Environment is paramount. The fascinating part, is that these convirus (ignorance) has a guaranteed cure, which is “EDUCATION”, yet the widespread of these disease continues even in our present day.
Education serves the purposes of awareness raising in the values of human dignity. Education is also said to be mankind’s greatest natural resources which should be available to everyone of us, but that’s not the case here, education has become an asset readily available to the elite club.
Today we talk about inclusive education, which implies that regardless of the condition of the individual, be it physical, mental or emotional challenges, they all have the right to an excellent education. Forgetting the fact that even the individuals who are whole hasn’t been able to harness the educational opportunities.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter where you’re coming from, but where you’re going to. Therefore, I encourage us to educate our minds more often, if a topic that peeks your intrest comes up, and you have little or no knowledge about it, you should research about it, the internet is there for us. Read good books, stir up your mind, refine your perception.
It’s not about been a graduate or grabbing a certificate, it’s more about being educated enough to solve real life problems we tend to encounter on a daily basis. So instead of waiting for some institution to come to our aid, let’s educate our minds, and believe me, that little light of ours is going to shine and overcome the darkness of ignorance.
