When I was in high school, I drove a purple Honda civic hatchback. On the back of “Abe” I had a lovely sticker that said, “Mean People Suck” in cursive, pretty, writing with flowers and pretty colors everywhere.
I loved that sticker.
Why? Because I did and still do think that mean people suck.
Wanna see who I think is mean? These people.
A “no-kids-allowed” movement? Really? Seriously?
You know, this country needs some serious wake up calls. What do you think will become of a nation of child-haters?
And who are these people kidding anyway? Hasn’t anyone told them what they were like as children? Don’t they understand that human beings are sinful from birth? That good parents are what makes good kids and that even then, children will mess up? Children are adults in training!!! Hello!!! They are not supposed to have their act together. They are not supposed to be perfect!
This year alone, I have had several altercations with total strangers regarding my children. There was the guy in the library who shooshed my two year old when he spoke. I stood up to that guy and told him that I had it under control and he needed to chill out. Then there was that awful man at the Lavender farm in Eureka who called my son a “wreck” and banned me from the farm because my son cried when I was about to walk into his store. What a mean man!
Is that the kind of world we want to even raise children in?
Look. There are those of us who believe that children are a gift from God himself. We believe that raising them to have morals, values and to love others will make the world a better place. So you know all you mean people who want to start child bans? Well you know, I’m glad my kids will outlive people like you. Thank you for not having children yourself. That’s not the kind of legacy we want to reproduce.
