Sometimes I mix church and state, so sue me.

Insert attention getter here—————–> {ATTENTION GETTER!}

It’s Wednesday… Not sure how I feel about it, seems how I’m home, and not at the gym right now. Ya I don’t like it. But I will be back soon enough. My teacher gave us a lecture about how important it is to put an attention getter at the beginning of your writing… so I did. My teacher is so cool. Please don’t lay him off.

I just thought I’d give my two cents on the budget cuts that are supposed to take place on the first. {Ya, I’m cool and know about the world and stuff.} First off I’d like to say making these cuts in our educational system will only hurt the country worse. We are the future of America and the quality of our education depends on the funds our school receives. Without teachers the student’s will be the ones who suffer. Do you really want to fix the nations economy by taking opportunity from the students? I don’t know where you grew up and I don’t know where you come from, but I don’t think you have ever sat in a classroom that is over full. I have. I have been in a class with over 40 kids and only room for about 30. I struggled in that class because I got almost no help from the teacher. I didn’t get to sit at desk for half the year. Please don’t take money from my school. I don’t think you have ever sat in a school that was so hot it was unsafe because it didn’t have air conditioning. I have. There were students that were sent to the hospital because of heat stroke, and we had to do math in the hallways because it was 2 degrees cooler. Please don’t take money from my school. I don’t know if you ever got involved in the extra curricular activities, but I did. Theatre was a huge part of my Jr. High experience and is a big part of who I am today. These extra curricular activities such as sports and theatre keep kids out of trouble and give us something to achieve. Please don’t take money from my school. I know you have never had to use an online text book because “online” was something foreign to you when you were growing up. The online text books don’t work. They have typos and errors, and they make it hard for families with several children. I know you think every family in America has multiple computers, tablets, and apple products to use, but the reality… not everybody has those things. I may be fortunate enough to have resources in my home, but I know many people who don’t. {I must also note that none of your text books work on Apple products since Apple has blocked these sights, and they don’t work on Kindles either, because the Kindles don’t read the format of the online books.} It is not fair for these students to have to suffer because you can’t figure out the government. I may not know everything, but I know enough to say that the future of America rests in your hands. Please be careful with it.

Now I’m sure that was a long and boring paragraph for most of you. Congrats on finishing it! Now I’d like to leave some thoughts and scriptures with all y’all who, like me, are amazed by these great and terrible thinks taking place in the world. This was from my scripture study this morning. Take from it what you will.

1 Thessalonians 5

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, peace and safety; then  sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, bretheren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.

I believe these scriptures go along perfectly with our theme schripture this year…

        “Wherefore, 
                STAND YE in holy places,                         
                                   and be not moved,    
                       until the day of the Lord Come;                
                                                                        for behold,                                         
            it cometh quickly
saith the Lord, Amen”                   
                                        -D&C 87:8

I believe these are dark times, and that they will get darker the nearer we get to our final hour. We must stand as an army of God, ready to contend with all evil. I encourage you to stay strong, and to keep on fighting.
