Religious conflicts

Because this is a public place I won’t be specific about the various religious differences I learned about today.

It’s like I’m watching Romeo and Juliet, or West Side Story. Boy likes girl and girl likes boy…BUT….the siblings and parents of the various ultra religious strands don’t like the fledgling relationship.

It all ends in continuous conflict, even threats, lies, and potential violence. I learned that some teens are hiding from relatives in other countries who would cause permanent physical harm if they had the chance. I’m stunned.

More and more I’m learning that public education has a most important role to play in helping all people learn to get along. It’s a blessing and a calling to be an educator.
