Sow today, reap tomorrow,
December 13, 2012
This review is from: Bad Choices (Faces Behind the Stones) (Kindle Edition)Choices. We make numerous ones each day, right and wrong. As children, we learn through trial and error as we discover how to make our way through this world. Bumps, skinned knees, bruises and cuts are the trophies we carry while we grow. During the tumultuous teenage years, we have migrated from learning how to control our physical bodies to gaining understanding of controlling our inner thoughts, feelings and mental state.
This journey is made even more difficult by the settings teenagers sometimes find themselves in. The wrong crowd, the wrong voice listened to, the wrong decision made, can forever alter the trajectory of their lives. This book, through the clever use of a stroll inside a cemetery, highlights the circumstances of the demise of each name etched into a headstone. The bad choices they made in life will forever haunt them in death.
Death is something each of us will face no matter how vehemently we fight it. Young adults, more especially teenagers, seem to encapsulate themselves with the notion that they are invincible. These stories of those that made bad choices while still alive, and are now suffering the repercussions of their earthly actions, illuminates the reality that what you sow today, you reap tomorrow.
I recommend this book for all teenagers, parents and young adults. Quite the wake up call.
