Z

Dear readers,

 

I’m at a loss  for words and lack understanding. Will someone please explain in layman’s terms, what is happening to this generation of young people, commonly referred to as GENERATION Z. The majority of them seem to lack good morals, and they have values that they  not meaningful. Furthermore, there is a blatant disregard for human life, and they resist becoming a positive, creative, active member for the society they live in. I’ve observed the absence  of modesty that is viewed as being back wards and old fashion among young ladies of this generation, and some of the women from my era ( baby boomers). The young males glorify the sagging pants fashion no matter how ignorant this style makes them appear. This may seem like as expression of personal bias towards GENERATION Z; nonetheless, I’m saying out-loud what most adults are thinking or talking about behind closed doors.

Thinking of Self

Dear readers,

The thinking of some people is this once an individual decides to crossover from singlehood into the realm of a monogamist relationship, the word self cannot be used to describe him or her. Why? Because where there was once 1 now there is 2, and self no longer matters. The perspective of others is that the act of being selfish has no place in a relationship. In other words, people who are engaged in a bond of wild romance,  and sexual intimacy should think only about what is good for the ” relationship.” Individuals in a relationship should not act on their own or speak for themselves because their behavior would be considered to be selfish. Therefore, what affects the individual will trickle down to the relationship. Because where there was once 1 now there is 2.

Body Shaming, a choice or discrimination?

Dear readers,

” Body shaming is a negative statement and attitude towards another persons weight or size.”

I am told that setting standards when seeking a life partner is important. In a prospective partner we look for compatibility and good characteristics like: someone who is caring, humble, generous, and self assured. Some people rely on chemistry, “a connection of a bond or common feeling between two people.” For others, physical attraction is important, meaning features that are considered aesthetically pleasing or beautiful.

Question, have you found yourself staring  at a couple who is noticeably gorgeous from head to toe; or the opposite, the women is more physically fit than her male companion, and vice a versa? The general consensus is that aesthetics should not be a deal breaker when choosing a partner.

We all know the saying” beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” Haven’t  you noticed the world is leaning towards outer beauty? A well toned body is a mandatory requirement regardless of  the person’s personality, standards or morals. There are ads that are dedicated to Body Shaming most  are directed towards women. What is most shameful is  people are using body shaming as a form of discrimination when selecting a partner. These people are sending a clear message that based on an individuals physically appearance that they are good enough.

In Their Eyes

Student # 1: Why are other people angry at us?

Student # 2: Will it happen again?

Student # 3: Are we going to have to go to another school?

Om Monday and Tuesday there was chaos. Today is Wednesday still trying to return to a normal schedule. The Saturday September 18, bombing of the Chelsea area in New York City hit close to home. The school I teach at is located near the bombing site. On Sunday the day after, the school administrators called an emergency meeting to prepare the staff how to console frightened parents and scared children. Nowadays, educators, school administrators, and other school staff are being trained on the subject of terrorism and what to do just in case. In the Newspapers the statement ” New Yorker’s are staying calm” this  maybe true for the adult population, however, how do we look in the eyes of frightened children  and say ” Stay Calm.” Where is the training manual for that?

The Converstaion

Dear readers,

While sitting in the schools cafe taking a must need coffee and lay’s potato chip break, I found myself engaged in a conversation  about winners and losers with a freshman. The subject of cheating came up, and from his perspective in today’s society playing fair isn’t expected. He said, ” Some one  has to lose for the other person to win; and if the winner achieves their goal by cheating then the mission is accomplished because the end goals is that the winner gets what they want.”

Me: Is there any circumstances where cheating is acceptable?

Student: Depends on the situation.

Me: Are you saying its okay to cheat?

Student: Sometimes because people who cheat win.

Me: Hmmmmmmmm. Why do you feel this way?

Student: People who cheat are smart, they get what they want.

Me: What about honest people?

Student:They are slow that’s why they don’t win.

Me: What happens to the people who are hurt when someone cheats and it affects them?

Students: If a person is going to cheat they can’t allow their feelings to get in the way.

Me: What have your parents told you about cheating?

Student: That its wrong and to always be honest.

Me: Ok.

Student: Have you ever did something wrong even though you knew it was cheating.

Me: Silence.
