DP Daily Prompt: Back of the Queue
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never got around to starting( an activity, hobby, or anything else, really? Tell us about it — and tell us about what’s keeping you from doing it.
Lately I am thinking of writing a book, this is not something I’ve always wanted to do, but am thinking about it since last year. I’m not sure what I can write about. I have often thought about writing about the kids I taught.
My best experience came from teaching, I always loved kids they were a joy to teach, to talk with, I watched them grow into lovely human beings, they are so innocent,so outspoken, when they think someone is not being fair.
I remember about an incident I was teaching them religion, there was a story of the natives who allowed the visitors to take as much land as they want by walking, the visitors misused it by running as far as they could to claim the land.Immediately every single hand shot up in disapproval, they said, “But miss that’s cheating they were not permitted to do that”.
I thought about their reaction and felt God bless them, if our heads of states could be as fair as these kids, they would think twice before they took away territories from innocent nations. Wars in the name of peace would not have taken place.
Whenever I think of writing ,the faces of my kids I taught comes to my mind, and I tell myself they deserve to be written about.
Thank you for this post. I encourage you to write a book. Your talent is there for this, and the world would benefit therefrom.
All good wishes,
Thank you Robert for encouraging me, I appreciate your kind comment ,thank you.
I really like the analogy you give, and how teaching is such a rewarding career.
It is if you love to teach kids. My Prof. tried to change my mind about teaching in a school, he could not,
and at the end of the day I liked what I did.Thank you Noah for your comments,I always appreciate your feedback.
