Hello everyone! My name is David, and I come from Kenya. The question we're going to focus on right now is would I like to be in the army?
As much as people from the army protect us in our daily lives from things like war, I wouldn't want to be in the army that much because I've lived with people around me who've been in the army, friends and family, and I know what it takes and it does to be in the army. You have to be restricted to some certain levels sometimes, and you go away from your family for so long without seeing them. You're fixed in a way like, with the contract that you sign, you're not flexible if anything comes along your way, you're not flexible to switch to the better option. YOU have to stick to your contract, so I don't think I would like to be in a situation where I'm way from my family, for more than let's say five years, because I've been transferred somewhere else, and the only time I have to see my family is like a week or so.
And I really appreciate what people from the army do, but it's the kind of life that you live once you're in the army. I wouldn't like to live that kind of life. I'd like to live a life where I'm happy. And anything that I'm doing, I'm doing cause I'm happy. I don't want to be locked up in a situation where, like, I'm really not happy with the situation that I got myself into, and getting out of a problem. So being in the army is a really nice thing, but as for me, I wouldn't like to be in the army, and I really respect people in the army, my family, my friends, so don't get me wrong about being in the army. It's just my opinion about you know family comes first.
