Dear students, we are all gathered here now, standing with the same challenges. We are teenagers , living in a world where we have a million pressures and expectations that society tells us. Not only do we have societies expectations for us, we still have to do as God wants and live a moral life because in the end, we only have God to own up to. We have all just watched a film, that I personally can say, changed my view on life currently. Haven't we all been in Jake's shoes before, having to make a million different choices, some moral and some not? I'm sure we all can say yes, so read along with me now to see how Jakes moral issues mimic the same ones we face everyday. Jake was a normal teenager, living in a modern society, trying to keep his friends and live life to the fullest. Jake had to make moral choices, and he failed to make many of the right ones, before God came into his life. Jake ditched one of his old friends, Roger, to become popular. I see this happening at Justin all the time. People leave their old friends for new, cooler kids, not thinking about how it will affect their former friends. When Jake did this, he lead Roger to believe that he wasn't worth it and tipped him over the edge to take his own life. Only then did Jake realize his mistake of leaving Roger and turn to God for answers and help. We have to realize our mistakes before it is too late! We need to be an inclusive community and accept everyone, not single kids out. We saw how it affected Roger and Johnny when they felt like they were alone, and we do not want to do this to anyone! We have to learn go accept everyone for who they are because every single one of us is made in gods image and we are perfect just the way we are. When things got hard, Jake needed to find reassurance in God and figure out how he could have made a difference. Everyone one of us gathered students here need God's help to make choices and sometimes we realize that too late like Jake did.
