There’s a new film coming out about an actual tsunami in Asia. In watching the trailers for the film I realized that the survivors had to fight against going where the water took them. They had to forcibly choose to go a path that would take them out of harm’s way. If they just gave into the panic and let the water take them with the debris, they would have been slammed against immovable objects harder than they were and they would have been torn apart.
I remember it was said during the tsunami that the animals (elephants, etc.) left the beach before the tsunami struck and headed for the hills.
Individuals in an ever deteriorating society have the same choice; give in and go the direction society is taking them forcing them into hard, damaging situations, or they can resist and choose to take a path that carries them to safety.
Our parents used to tell us, ‘don’t cave into peer pressure.’
Five words that sum up the situation. When the peer group of society says you must ‘dumb down’ your language, choosing to substitute curse words for intelligent communication, resist the flow of the tsunami. When society demonstrates an immoral standard of living and tells us that’s the new normal, resist the flow. Choose higher ground that won’t hard you.
I mean to be encouraging. You see, we can speak kindly and gently and intelligently to one another. It’s ok. We don’t have to curse. You can’t make us do that. We can be modest in appearance while maintaining individuality. It’s possible.
We can decide our families won’t watch vulgar ‘entertainment’ that is sexually explicit and degrades others. We can choose higher ground of family programming that esteems others and is positively decent.
Our teens are allowed to be good, wholesome young men and women. They don’t have to be carried away with every wind of deceptive, degrading doctrine. They can choose to be respectful, attentive to education, setting goals and entering a future built on better values.
Are we debris, tossed about in the destruction? Or, are we on the mountaintop? This life is the only one you get. Choose the higher ground.
