We went to watch "Bella" yesterday, we really liked it. It has a beautiful message, which made me cry. It also inspired me, motivated me to be more faithful. I saw how beautiful our faith is...and how sad it is to know some people just have no idea. Like the people in my class which is about to start.
I'm taking a health class this semester. Teachers have to know children's anatomy and what to do if a child has an asthma attack! Everything was going great until the word "sexual education" came. Teaching kids about abstinence? Well, yes, it's probably the safest way to go, but teenagers are not going to abstain, so let's just teach them how to have "Safe sex"! Let's teach them the different "types of sex" and heterosexual as well as homosexual activities.
YES, those are the kinds of things I am "learning". Oh God, why don't they have an idea? Why don't they know that it is just WRONG! They believe in the wrong things, starting with the word itself: it's not sex, it's sexual intercourse!!
It is difficult you know, to be in the middle of a classroom where everyone believes in something different than what I believe. Should I say something? Should I contradict the teacher? Do I feel capable of doing that? No I don't. Defending my point of view, in English, is not my thing. So, what do I do God? I prayed.
Today after Mass I told Gerardo I wanted to see some flowers that were on the table at the entrance. We walked over there and to my surprise, there were some pamphlets that I had never seen before about contraception and NFP vs. the pill. They were there, waiting for me.
I won't raise my hand and tell the whole class that they are WRONG! Maybe I should, but I am not that brave. I will have my pamphlets with me, maybe I'll just put them there on top of my notes, maybe the girl that seats next to me will say something. Maybe I'll just leave them there after I leave the room. Maybe I'll defend God's law that way. I'll just try to be an instrument in the middle of this jungle.
