Take responsibility for your actions

Dear Editor,

I must use this medium to warn our youngsters to be leery of reckless sexual intercourse that results in unwanted children. We cannot expect to be moaning and groaning with pleasure for a few minutes without reasonable protection or attention, and then chastise our government for failing to provide for the very children that are born out of our carelessness.

I urge them to step down a little from “Cloud Nine” during those ecstatic moments and check the protection they are using or seek “emergency security” if their contraceptive method fails.

Certainly, we cannot keep multiplying and then expect our political leaders to assume the role of “daddy” and “mommy” while we continue to parade wildly on a bike back with no helmets on.

It is time that we really take personal responsibility for our actions and stop blaming our leaders for the scourge of poverty besetting us.

Yes, our leaders have been said to mismanage our finances over the years, and yes, some have made bad and hasty decisions, but we cannot thrive on these errors and expect to move forward. The wrongs have been done, and it is time we make things right by first re-examining our personal lifestyle and re-evaluating our priorities and decisions as citizens of this country.

Stop blaming Sister P for everything that goes awry and start responding as responsible citizens of this country.
