How much should we allow ourselves to endure?

I've been thinking about this question for a long time. Now, something needs to be done. Tolerance is a way to deal with hardships gently, such as being around someone that hurts you. Everyone faces a variety of challenges, but everyone has their own way of dealing with the pain. As such, every situation should be confronted with patience.


If anyone gets stuck in a counterproductive cycle, try to understand why that is to become stronger. It is important to realize that each person is different and has their own identity and characteristics. Once understood, endurance is increased, making it easier to understand each other's point of view.

I wholeheartedly recognize that life as we know it right now may come with its challenges, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter what.

The results of endurance to get to a positive place are promising; although the fruitage of the situation could be unpleasant, it should not lead to the loss of self-control, just growth.

    Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

    What Should We Do When the Culture Wars Invade Our Children’s Lives?

    Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

    You know when there’s a controversy whether to include both sides to the Holocaust in a Texas school district, the culture wars have once again invaded the children’s lives. Similarly, in Southern Pennsylvania, books by people of color were banned (or per the official Central York School statement: “frozen” for an entire year.)

    These discussions by the school boards are impacted by the bills passed in government, as in the case of House Bill 3979 requiring public school teachers to present various points of view when teaching about current events and social issues. Often, the impulse to clutch pearls and to “think of the children” is a rhetorical device to further political causes. As the larger climate in a racialized society such as the United States grapple with a history of slavery and the fight for racial justice--with the most current iteration being the black lives matter protests in the summer of 2020--what the children learn in schools have become a new battleground for those who land on opposing sides of this culture war.
