Timing is Everything

In Uncategorized on May 30, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Whether you believe in God, Nature, a spirit, or whatever you so choose, at some point in time, we have asked to receive our heart’s desire. Seemingly, when we least expect it, our wildest dreams are fulfilled. The question is: when we do receive it, are we prepared to be the receiver of such gifts, information, talents, etc.? Tonight, the Charlotte Bobcats are hoping, that after a horrific (and may I remind, a lockout shortened) season, their time is now–getting the top pick in the 2012 draft (and with it may come Anthony Davis). Yesterday, the timing was right for Virginie Razzano, defeating Serena Williams in the first round of the French Open.

When the timing is right, there are no questions asked, you just know you are supposed to be at that place and time on that day. For Mississippi, the time is now; we are at a crossroads, where elected leaders, parents, teachers and administrators, health professionals, and communities are coming together to address the high teen pregnancy rate. For the timing is only right–school districts must decide whether to continue on with an abstinence-only program or abstinence-plus. Mississippi school districts are split over how to approach the subject, but what we do know is that the time is now–how will we capitalize on the opportunity, the moment, the instant that we have all asked for–how do we stop our children from having children?

  1. Love the way you transitioned from belief in something supernatural to the abstinence program. My observation is that abstinence attitudes seem to have a lot to do with the way people feel about the supernatural. In other words, religion plays a big part in this conversation. I hope you will keep talking about it.
