“When The Chips Are Down:Which Side Of The Coin?”

image

There is always more than one side to an issue or a story. So when the chips are down, which side of the coin is your take. On the day of roll call, where would you be found. Doing good or doing bad?

Since the creation of the world, human being has been endowed with the capacity to make choice of preference among alternatives. From day one, the good and the bad runs paralleled. It’s our individual choice to swing to specific side.

What is good is good and what is bad is bad. There is no middle point between the extremes. Internet is a platform where both tendencies are exihibited. If you ask me, the most desirable of the sides. I would tell you, the best side which is my preference is the good side. It’s our duty to make sure that whatever we do in reaching out must be for the benefit of the mankind. Let our name be counted among those that make possitive and lasting impact on the life of those we come across online and offline. Yoruba tribe of western part of Nigeria has this colorful adage that say “Oruko rere, o san ju wura ati fadaka lo”. Means good name is more precious than all the pprecious things of this world( gold, silver, questionable wealth etc). Moreover “Ojo melo la o lo laye, tan wewu irin?” How long would a person lives carrying unneccessary weight?.

Let’s be careful of what we do and how we live our life. The good thing is, when we pass on! People should be able to say ‘a great man\woman has pass by’.
