I am very certain that during the time of our ancestors, that things where very difficult for them. No basic amenities, infrastructures, good hospitals, all where not in place. Many public and private institutions as we have it now where the least, but as of then the education was of a good standard compared to what we have now. Hardly could you hear that someone is in institution; to the family of such person in the community, they will be respected and taken to a high esteem because it means a lot for parents to have given their children the gift of education.

Education was valued and respected. Technology was never in their time. Think of, when someone's child is leaving for the city and that's the last that those he or she is living behind could hear from him or her, because there is no means of communications to use to reach them while on away. To God is their hope in, because they don't know what to expect but can only hear or see the person when he or she comes home or sends a massage to someone coming home. But yet, these people enjoyed their time.

Hospital to deliver was never in place, people delivers at home and in the farmlands. No accessible roads, but yet, they were better off. No cars, yet they were better off. Now to our time were we have all these amenities but yet, our time has not been better off, compared to that of our ancestors. Imagine a child leaving for the city and for every kilometre gone, the parents could call to know the condition of the journey, yet we ain't better compared to them. We are so far from them. We are still searching for what that could give us happiness, but simple fact is that, true happiness only comes from God Almighty. Live for him and you will get the happiness you search fore.
