LONG SHOT (LS)
This movie beyond beauty is no difference in what is happening in our society or around us. There are situations where children don’t listen to the advice of parents, especially those from very rich background, where most things are done for them. Jaspa(Emeka Enyecha) put his hope on his parents riches now towards the end he loses both parents, how is he going to cope, so most children today in our society depend on parents riches, they don’t intend to work for theirs, which is very dangerous and risky. Now what if those parents are not there how will they survive?
Also in the beginning of the movie jaspa’s father talks about the meaning of jaspa saying jaspa was one of the wise men that paid homage to Jesus and he said jaspa was not making use of his name. He said jaspa was a wise man but he was not showing any wisdom, but jaspa argues that the decision he was taking was wise. What am I trying to bring out of this? What am trying to say is that children should try and listen to their parents. Most children who never had parents or who had parents that never had time for them have become wayward and useless. In this our generations now children and parents are now the same, you cant differentiate them, because there is no respect.
Parents train up your child the way he should grow, because wherever they go they are the ambassadors of your family, so whatever they do will hither add positively or negatively to your family. So be mindful of your kids. And to children learn to obey and trust your parents because they want the best for you, don’t be like jaspa.
“Do you know jaspa was one of the wisest men in the bible, he paid homage to the lord Jesus”.
