Birth Control for Middle School Girls!

I know the statistics. I know that five students at King Middle School in Portland, Maine recently admitted they are sexually active. I know that there were at least 17 pregnancies in Portland middle schools in the last four years. I also know that the Portland School Committee decided that the risk of middle school aged girls getting pregnant was too high and they should make birth control available. Yes, middle schoolers--who can be as young as eleven!

Sexual contact with a minor is still illegal, right? What if every time a school nurse heard about a minor who is sexually active we make the police investigate and prosecute? Well, you can forget that in Portland. Instead their solution is to hand out contraception to under age children in order prevent bad stuff from happening to children who make bad choices.

Now that you're a black belt have you arrived?

Someone recently asked me, "Do you feel different now that you have you're black belt? Do you feel like you've arrived? Is it cool?" As I thought about the question I realized that I don't feel like I've arrived at all. In fact, I would liken my feelings to a person who is lining up to run a marathon, not like the runner who has finished the marathon. In martial arts, as with any art that one might seek to master (relationships, painting, photography, writing, hunting, etc), there is always more to learn and refine. We chase a goal that is unreachable, perfection. Yet we still seek it. I'm convinced that this is why people talk so much about enjoying the journey.
