Are You For Real?

brick-wall

Have you ever watched a film or show that made you cry, feel joy or even intense anger and frustration?

Why?

I was listening to American Family Radio and there was a news report about a High School teacher who raped his 14-year old student. The teen then committed suicide. How do you process news like that?

And the sexual predator was sentenced 30 days of jail time. What! Are you for real?

The radio host couldn’t wrap his mind around this whole situation. Me too! He said that is why he believes in public hanging for such heinous crimes.

I heard this news yesterday and I’m still thinking about it. How does a parent prevent or prepare for the possibility?

I then heard a song on the radio that helped me refocus. I’ll post the video and lyrics below.

Royal Tailor – Remain (Official Lyric Video)

“Remain”

I know you’re feeling weighted down
It’s all on your shoulders
I know the dreams in your head
Don’t look any closer

But I’m gonna make you stronger
Hold on just a little bit longer
‘Cause I’ll be there
When you feel like you’re going under
I’m gonna be there for you
yeah yeah

[Chorus:]
The sky could fall
The ground could shake
The stars burn out
And seasons change
The time will pass
And beauty fade
But all my love will remain
All my love will remain [x2]

When there’s a secret to tell
It’s locked and I’ll keep it close
And when you’re walking through fire
I’ll take you to streets of gold

Yeah I’m gonna make you stronger
Hold on just a little bit longer
‘Cause I’ll be there
When you feel like you’re going under
I’m gonna be there for you
yeah yeah

[Chorus]

And when the world all around you feels out of place
You can’t seem to find a familiar face
I’m here to remind you my love remains
And you know

[Chorus]
