Describe what You Think Is Wrong with the World
Our creator created a perfect world without any disorder. He looked at all what he had created and was pleased, for it was pleasant and perfectly made. But the world today is not as it was at the time of creation . Many things have gone wrong mostly due to neglect.
Disintegration of the family unit is the biggest cause of probems in the world today as we know it. Our creator had envisaged a world where a man leaves his father and mother and cleaves to his wife , and they become one flesh.
In our current world the family unit has disintegrated . The number of divorce cases witnessed all over the world is quite traumatising. The percentages of marriages that end up in divorce from countries around the world are quite alarming with Sweden having the highest percentage of 54.9%, followed by the United States with 54.8%.

There are devastating results due to broken marriages. The most terrible is the neglect of the parental role that is love and care to children. An entire vulnerable generation is left to look after itself. Children therefore left alone turn into dangerous delinquents.They result to:
- Early marriages.
In the absence of parents children use all kinds of drugs. Drugs are listed as the secondest largest cause of death worldwide, smoking alone results in 10 percent of deaths around the globe, according to the World Health Organization. This adds up to roughly 5 million people annually. Drug trafficking and smuggling lead to loss of trillions of dollars from national economies.
Drugs wars resulting from competition among eminent drug lords lead to many deaths as witnessed in Mexico in the years 2006-2012 where 50,000 people have died due to drug wars. Even as we speak approximately 20 youths are introduced to drugs every 40 seconds. If left unattended to drugs and drug wars will wipe a significant percentage of the world’s population by 2040.young people who never had proper parental care during their childhood, if they had they would have turned into better useful people. The main cause of the Second World War was the rise of Germany. Propaganda was formulated declaring that Germany was the best country in the world. This campaign was championed by a mad man namely Adolf Hitler. Over 19 million people died and 20 million were war casualties.World War Two claimed 60 million lives, which was over 2.5% of the world population.
Had Hitler received proper parental up bringing during his childhood days none of these 90 million fathers and mothers would have died. Economic recession during the World Wars also decimated a substantial part of the world population. It is a shame that in Africa today there are an estimated 200,000 child soilders, a testimony of the failure of the family unit.
Poverty is mainly caused by lack of educaton. This leads high numbers of illetrate people.It can be shown that most Third World Countries have very high numbers of un-educated youths.There are schools in these countries, but parents do not emphasize the importance of education to their children.
Promiscuous behaviors among our youth predispose them to highly infectious diseases like STD’S, STI’S and HIV/AIDS. A recent survey carried out by the World Health Organization indicates that 70% of HIV patients are mainly youths aged between 18- 35years. The survey also indicated that countries with great number of youths taking care of themselves have the highest numbers of HIV patients. If parents had stood for their children in these countries none of these youths would have contracted this fatal disease.
If the family unit is left to disintegrate the world will always be a mess. Stringent measures should be promptly taken. Incentives should be given to model families, all over the world there should be an awareness created by a Best Family Awards system. Leaders should be at the frontline of the campaign and be exemplary role models of successful family units.
