Yesterday, I discovered how ashamed and embarrassed I am by the world that We are leaving our children and grandchildren!
I was talking with a bright, beautiful 15-year-old girl in one of our local high schools! She has been diagnosed with having a “nervous stomach”, due to severe anxiety from attending school. A local doctor has her on anti-anxiety meds, but She still can’t eat and is extremely skinny! She has a friend with exactly the same “nervous stomach” diagnosis!
The reason for the anxiety and stomach problems emerged as She talked! Other “cool girls” keep flaming the young lady on social media, the flames are made up and vicious, most of a sexual nature! We found out that most of the other girls at the school willingly take selfies of themselves in compromising positions and states of attire! It seems You can’t get a boyfriend if You don’t play along with this insane game for 15 year olds!
I asked the young lady if She had complained to the School? She had but this just made the flaming worse, now the school has scheduled a mediator to intervene between the flamers and the flamed! This of course causes more flaming, and more anxiety and more nervous stomachs!
The young lady showed Me her cellphone, with one single messaging app she had sent over 183,000 messages – the majority of them while in school! How much can any student learn in this insane environment?
Our County is currently trying to deal with a “suicide epidemic” among teens! I fear for this Young lady’s health and welfare! I can’t imagine getting up every day for school, dreading the flaming You will get, taking a lunch to school that You are too nervous to eat!
My heart goes out to this Young Lady, and I’m so pissed that “apparently” nothing can be done about it! How did We ever let things get this far? How could We just pretend that everything is okay? How can We look at ourselves in the mirror, and say: “See things aren’t that bad”!
Smart phones, (as the original meaning of the word smart means) are there to hurt Us! They are tools of “conformity”, and “inclusion” into the collective! If You step outside the lines, you will be punished by the collective!
The Mother, is beside herself and wants to put the young lady in Home Schooling, this would mean there would never be a boyfriend, so this causes the young lady even more anxiety!
How did We ever let things get this far? (I know I’m repeating Myself, but How?)
