Time Capsule: A letter to Generations Unborn.[WEEK 144]
Hello to my posterity
Greetings to the future from the past, to whoever is reading this letter. This letter is written in the 3rd month of the year 2023, hoping that my 3 or 1000th generation will read it someday and i hope it finds you in peace or perhaps help you find solace in whatever circumstances you find yourself. My hands are shaken as I write down what I hope will be beneficial to you in your days. I must also acknowledge I curious and filled with some sort of anxiety to know about your day.
I hope this will find you in a day when the world has moved passed what it looked like in my days. I hope the environment is so friendly and that people of all race have equal respect and prize the love for humanity above everything else.
I greatly acknowledge your world has approved technologically and advanced knowledge in medicine as I am aware the future is unpredictable but I am optimistic for your day.
In my days I have heard of wars in foreign countries, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricane and I have also witness how little disagreement can change the day into night- light into darkness. On the positive side, I have seen the internet change over time, today the world is shirfting into web3 and we have self driving cars, something my forefathers only dreamt of if perhaps it ever came into their minds. My forefathers lived in caves, today we live in well structured blocks and brick houses with well constructed road networks which is not so effective but I know it will be in your days.
Notwithstanding the improvements in our days and evidently in your days, still the lessons in life are the same through out all ages. I hope some of the things life has taught me will be of a great benefit to you in your days. So I will go on and write these word of exhortation, faith-filled and correction from your aging father who today is no more but one's lived. Isn't it ironic.
Firstly, I want you to know that life is too short to worry about the wrong things. Only yesterday I was a toddler, could barely mention any word right but today I am a young adult who tomorrow I will be no more nevertheless, this should not scare you but should help you decipher between what is really important and what is not.
Moreover, accept differences. Be more tolerable but firm in your decision. For this is the mark of all great men. Know that the world is more beautiful because of diversity in culture, in thinking, in knowledge and in economic and family structures. Think of what the world will be like if we all were to think and act the same way. Boring, right! If it were so life would not make any sense. Everything will be at a standstill. I want you to know there is beauty in diversity.
Again, learn to forgive and be a man of your word. You can only find true satisfaction as you forgive frankly and be true to your oath. There is no price in revenge but only regret, pain, sorrow and deeper wounds. Love is the only antidote that can heal all the wounds that have be inflicted on your by foes. If you go to war, you may win but you will lose somethings which can not be replace. Years of hard work will go to waste so why not find sweet able ground to talk about your differences and quickly resolve all misunderstanding.
Finally, get quality education. Your education should train your mind and hands to reason and to create. Play with the difficult questions, cherish it and work around it. Develop every good idea until it becomes a great one. You possess the power to change your situation so never settle for the basics. Do not follow the road everyone is following. Create your own path and tread it, that will let you stand out.
In closing, know that I love you and cherish this privilege I have to communicate with you across space and time, and I hope this message helps you find inspiration, hope and clarity as you navigate life or even help you find some connection to the past. In our days, we have only yearned and dreamed of your days. Days of the possibilities and advancement in all things. Please find purpose in it and be happy my dear child. I love you always.
