Sex Ed Horror Stories: Sexual Education Misinformation

www.susanne287@wordpress.com

I could not stop reading this article.  I was in complete shock that anyone would tell high schoolers this stuff in sex eduction class.  It was not only shocking to me, made me grateful that I was given accurate information, but makes me raise an eyebrow as to what my daughters might hear!  Of course, my first choice is to be the one that teachers my daughters about sexual facts.  I know that is not realistic, but I, at least, hope that school officials would provide correct facts.  Makes me aware that I need to ask them questions to see what is being taught.

To this day, whenever I hear the M*A*S*H song, I feel a ghost yarmulke on my head and have nightmarish flashbacks to Mrs. Levine – a fireplug with blue eyeshadow – crying about the six million. Oh, the six million – every damned week!  Mrs. Levine totally ruined the Holocaust for me.

Here’s what I learned about Jewish history in Hebrew School:…

Fighting The Current May Just Kill You

I love my cardio time at the gym. If I am alone it is my time and my time alone.  I equally love when a friend joins me.  Today, I had the pleasure of a friend’s company.  He was sharing with me a topic about life he recently heard. It was profound and true. Whatever you are facing in life you can accept it now or accept later, but eventually you have to accept it. It just depends on how long you want to play in the pain and suffering. 

As he spoke the words, I shook my head in agreement.  It may have been the truest statements I have heard in my life.  It really is not a matter of refusing to accept the experiences of life.  You do have a choice whether you accept circumstances now or later, but acceptance is not a choice.  The lack of accepting situations…
