Looking for Something Positive…

kermit-2687975_640

Since this whole Plandemic started, my heart has been aching for something positive. Sure, there have been little glimmers here and there, but I’m talking the collective positive.

I felt lost as to what and how to pray. Naturally, I prayed for health of loved ones and friends, and the end to the plandemic. And with the recent dump of Fauci’s emails, it seems the truth may be coming out, but the damage is already done. Now it’s time for some justice.

As I see it, the only way we’re going to get any justice is to take it to the private sector. I’m not talking some posse or anything like that, so please don’t misunderstand. But appointing yet ANOTHER government committee to get to the bottom of things is a bit like asking your teenager to police their own activities. You may get a few tidbits here and there, but you won’t ever get the whole picture. Time for some class action lawsuits if you ask me.

Our county school board has been embroiled in local and national controversy, making us one of the most well-known school districts around (and not in a good way). Our parents are now pitted against each other in a fight for our children’s education. The name-calling and mud slinging is out of control. Most of the comments on our county Facebook page aren’t even members of the community! There are only a few regular posters on there, and those parents are vicious and mean and hateful. Lawsuits are mounting, and everyone is on their guard.

So, where’s the positive in that? Well, with that being said, the eyes of parents in our district and across the country have been opened. Had it not been for the plandemic, most parents would have had NO IDEA what school districts had been teaching our kids or had planned for future lessons.

Having one child that graduated in the plandemic year of 2020, I can tell you that I rarely knew what she was being taught, especially in high school. Starting in middle school, the schools have a class called “resource” where the kids do their homework at school. I’ve never been in favor of this plan, for the obvious reason that I never saw any papers or any assignments, because they were all taken care of in school. I get the schools are trying to accommodate students and think they’re doing them a favor with this “resource” class, but it sure does leave us parents in the dark. Because when you ask your teen, do you have any homework, the reply is ALWAYS “I did it in resource,” whether or not they did. But I never had any proof, until things showed up missing, and I never knew what she was studying.

So, with the plandemic and kids being stuck at home to attend school online, the blinders flew off! No more “secret” assignments. No more “I already did it” excuses. With my son, I know EXACTLY what he is being taught. And you’d better bet I am watching like a hawk. He brings home a book to read for English? I’m reading it. He has an essay to write? I’m proofing it. Sending kids home may have been the best (or worst, depending on your view) thing they could have done. The emperor’s clothes are off! Now we know EVERYTHING, and a lot of us don’t like what we are seeing.

So, in a weird way, I guess that’s a big positive.

Now if we could just get back to living our lives the way we want to, and NOT a “new normal” but whatever “normal” is for each individual. I believe it’s coming. But nothing good comes without a price. It’s rarely ever easy. And if I never hear “new normal” again, I will be a happy woman.

What positive things have you experienced during the plandemic?

  1. You’d better believe that’s a good thing! And answered prayers. I have been praying for years that the Church in America would have their eyes opened, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Granted, not all the parents are Christians, but I’m guessing the majority of them have a world view that’s more biblical than that of the public school curriculum. We can’t be complacent.
