Teens Without Morals

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. A teen, A.J. Lane, was convicted of murderr. He appeared in court wearing a white tee-shirt with the word killer on it. Why? Lane didn't care about the feelings of the families. Can this 17/18-year-old be rehabilitated? Lane sat in court, dressed down in a tee-shirt. Why not have a dress shirt or any shirt without the word killer on it? The teens in Steubenville, Ohio that raped a 16-year-old girl were recently sentenced. Pictures of what they had done to the young lady were sent to social media. Laughter could be heard/seen in the videos, like it was a proud moment. Where were the morals of any teen that laughed, witnessed, the actions against the young lady. The teens didn't quietly notify anyone who could help the young lady. Not a trusted adult? The young lady's parents? Security? Older Teen? Coach? Police? Witnesses, teens, didn't want to come forward after the police became involved. Question: Some teens are growing up without morals?

Write What?

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. A writer sits down to write. Thoughts and questions are sifted through the mind. Write what is said out-loud. Stop. There's no need to panic. Write about the day before, a news headline or yourself. The Day Before The incident that caught your attention, funny or odd. My grandchildren, for instance, made paper projects. One wanted to make snow-flakes. Every time, the snow-flakes became something else. Once an intended snow-flake turned into mask of sorts. A writing project on how to have fun making paper cut-outs comes to mind. News Headline A certain news headline keep tapping at your attention. The Jodi Arias trail, accused of stabbing her ex, cutting his throat and then shooting him in the head, tapped at my attention. The news headline, story, opens itself up to fiction, non-fiction and poems. Personally, I'd like to know what went through her mind the moment it happened? Yourself Hackers keep stealing into my computer. I can't get it to operate or it hums after the hackers. I've had to buy new computers, software. I posting this at the library. What kind of person would sniff around my computer? Write What? An essay on people with bullying behavior could be a topic. Finally Write what is a writer's tool that keeps the creative flow ignited.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
