Baby boomer? June 24, 2008

Posted by 5 Wester in General Announcements.

Just as you thought the news of increasing gas prices couldn’t be any worse, you here something as bizzare as this one.

I’m sure you’ve heard about the “pregnancy pact” that’s been in the news this past week. I happened to be at work when it came on TV. Seventeen girls under the age of 17 at a high school, pregnant. Now that’s something you don’t get to see everyday! The obvious question is a big “Why?”

 I know the world isn’t getting any better… it’s just the signs of the times that the end is coming soon. I just didn’t expect it to be happening in my lifetime. What were these girls thinking if they were thinking at all? Can you blame them? After all, there’s that movie “Juno” which portrays the life of a fictional pregnant teenager, and that teen celebrity who just had a baby making it seem cool to be pregnant. Makes me wonder how these girls were brought up by their parents. Being pregnant and having a baby is a special thing, however, have it at the right time, you know, like after college and you have a good stable job… maybe a husband. Call me old fashioned, but there were a lot lesser problems and headaches back in the day.

Do I dare say, “what’s next?” Wake up America! I think it’s about time we took a deep look at ourselves and ask this question… “Is this the America I want?” I think we need to stop glamorizing the foolish and start featuring the ideal… like when that teen celebrity got pregnant, the networks should have chucked the show, or maybe stop making movies like “Juno”. What the heck, let’s just encourage our teenagers to get pregnant! NOT!
