SAY WHAT, SAY WHAT, SAY WHAT...

The other day I was sitting in a room with seven other people and one described someone as having, ‘Morals and Character’….
I almost fell off my chair,
Because it had been a long time, well other than in church,
Since I had heard those words,
To have morals, character or to be considered good or nice,
Has become so, passe’
I recall when I was a young woman,
The young women in my family were considered, ‘Good Girls’
The Vernon girls had reps for being good,
And we were proud of that,
I was especially proud,
Because my life was in turmoil at times,
But the one thing I could count on was being,
‘Smart and a good girl…’
That meant the world to me,
But somewhere along the line,
In this say anything,
Do everything,
I am only concerned with getting it world,
Things like morals,
Character,
Shame,
Dependability
And plain old doing the right thing,
Has become so uncool,
It seems folks are getting more,
Props, if you will, for bucking the system,
Fighting authority,
Doing their own thing,
And damn who it affects or compromises…
Not everyone,
Of course but enough to make it very noticeable,
And to make this continuing good girl,
Shudder….
So I am so glad to know that people are still describing,
And applauding those with Morals and Characters…

BE BLESSED!

Yes, there are some who still value those traits. Surprisingly, or maybe not, a lot of my daughters friends speak on this.

I think a lot of us in our generation still value those traits but we just have to make sure we teach the value to the younguns :)

Um hmm...can definitely relate to the good girl thing. And it is VERY uncool to do the right thing and be a good person. Smart is so out of the picture it's a shame.

Reading this made me happy.

Stay peace
