Just a couple of months ago, my colleague confided that she adopted a family (a mother and three kids) in her home. The mother was a victim of domestic violence for many years but she sought for help when her husband started sexually abusing the children.
It was a difficult decision on my colleague's part but she welcomed the family and extended help by supporting her to raise funds so that they could go home to the province where my sister's colleague awaited them.
What was striking in the story was the entire process... My colleague disclosed that had she left the mother alone, it would've taken her forever to get her papers and solicit money because the mother knew nobody and had no means to contact the 'right' persons... and this, is not an isolated case.
On Poverty and Ignorance
My father and I once had a discussion on poverty while watching the news. He asked me, if people had money would they still steal?
Here's a better question, would RH bill ever be a solution to e(r)asing poverty?
And you know the answer full well... we're speaking of appetites on both cases...
We say that the RH bill is pro-poor... and passing this out would abate population growth and increase economic strength. But take a look again... where are we patterning our lifestyles? Who are we taking on as models?
How do we look at 'children'? the 'unborn'? 'LIFE'?
Are we thinking of long term effects?
Woe to women ~ multiplied by the choice not to offer space to life and instead opening avenues to promiscuity and higher risks of cancer and abortion.
Since when have we left the poor to speak for themselves and have a voice of their own?
|Translation: VALUES EDUCATION should be taught to the youth NOT sex education|
This morning, we talked about inviting someone to write an article for us on RH Bill. One said, it shouldn't be about religion.
I think it's not about whose religion we follow. No, it isn't about religion at all ~ it's about whose life we're deciding on....
