This morning I was trying to toast a piece of bread in the dinning hall at camp. It did not go well. For starters, I decided that I was going to see what would happen if I stacked two pieces together and put them in at the same time. Only the outside of each piece got toasted. As I put both pieces in a second time, this annoying little child ran at the toaster and tried to shove his jacket in there. My first reaction was to shove it away and tell him to cut it out. He looked at me strangely as I realized that he was an ESL kid from Spain. I told him again, In Spanish to stop. He started screaming “PORQUE TE IMPORTA?” at me. (Why do you care) I told him in Spanish that if the building were to set on fire, I did not want to die or be responsible. He proceeded to shove his jacket in, even more determined than before. Fortunately, another Spanish girl, seemingly his sister, Said “Colombo, para!” (Columbus, Stop!) She gave me a look that said I’m not the only person who has had issues with Columbus. This was a relief. As I walked away with my toast, I realized just how much I truly hate children.
There are way too many religions with overly forceful views. Pretty much every religion in the world says that theirs is superior to the rest. Do those who say so truly believe that? Well, as I see it, all are wrong. If there were to be a God or, for that matter, any other superior being, wouldn’t it rather that no one cared who is responsible for everything that goes on, rather than having a constant war over it? Since as of now, it is impossible to “prove” any religious power truly exists, I think it would be very nice if everyone were to just be quiet about it. Stop excluding certain groups and types of people because your “god” told you to do so! If it really wanted something that it thinks is wrong to stop happening, you say it has the power to do anything and therefore, stop that thing from occurring to begin with. Just yesterday, I was in Washington DC with a school group. Literally, the minute I stepped off the bus, I saw two different religious groups, within 100 feet of each other. The first group, of Catholics, handed me a card questioning my abilities to communicate with God and had a microphone set up where they were preaching (yelling, as I see it) to anyone who would listen about how Abba, Mohammad, and several other religious figures would never care as much or be as good as Jesus because they would never die and resurrect for you. The second group was a religion that I did not recognize. They sat silently in a circle, all with their arms and legs crossed, meditating. They had a booth set up with pamphlets and a sign welcoming anyone to join them. A few friends and I went up to the Christians and asked them some questions about their view on homosexuality. They proceeded to go on about how Gays are attracted to the same sex because of something terrible that happened in their lives and only communicating with God could “cure” them. I only spoke to them briefly, before being forced by my teachers to leave. The second group had many more people than the first one. No one in the group approached our school. From the pamphlets on the booth that I looked over quickly, I understood that they focused on becoming closer to nature and your “inner self”. I think that it is obvious which religion I would favor, even though I do not think their beliefs are in any way superior.
Have you ever wondered why that kid who knows they are not good at school, stops trying to do well and clearly will not use their education in whatever path they choose to take in life, still is forced to take classes that are useless to them? For example, the girl who is absolutely dumb and knows it is constantly being convinced that she is just as smart as everyone else and should keep on concentrating on school, knowledge and other useless things that will not help her in life. Rather than letting her pick something that interests her and is productive, she must study what has been deemed “useful”, even if to her, it will never be so. Once she no longer gets that special advantage, help and security of people constantly helping her, she will likely want to move on to something that she actually enjoys, is good at, or is actually productive, through her eyes. Wouldn’t it be better if she could just work on what actually will be useful to her in the future from the beginning? We should just let students do what they are truly good at and are motivated to do because if they do not want to well in something, that thing is an absolute waste of time. I do think that for a couple hours a day, all children should learn the same basic things that will help everyone but, making everyone take calculus by the end of high school seems like a waste of time to me. Most people will not use any math beyond what they learned in 5th grade in their future careers. The athletic girl should be allowed to do sports for the majority of the day, rather than constantly fidgeting during class class, getting mediocre grades and having to try so hard on her homework that she doesn’t have enough time to join all the activities and teams she would otherwise have liked to be on. The theatrical boy should be allowed to focus primarily on acting. The smart kid who loves computers should be allowed to focus on increasing his knowledge of software, rather than making every child study the same things, with very little choice and, on top of that, convince those children that are not good at school that those subjects are just as important to them as to everyone else and that is what they should and must do with their lives if they want to be considered successful.
