I am so happy to be back home: EC.
I've been away for several reasons but the main one is WORK.
Ok, as you may know, I teach English in high school and nowadays I have been noticing something really uncomfortable among my teenage students. They think I am a bit "crazy" because I preach love, friendship , good manners and peace but it seems these words and actions are for "crazy people". They treat each other with too much hate, bad words, they hit one another and they say "that's normal and common" They also claim that saying "I love you" is for stupid people, instead of using their names, they use bad and terrible nicknames, they use their social networking such as Facebook, twitter and Instagram to insult themselves, upload photos of other classmates without their permissions and so on.
Now, this morning during my class, I was teaching them how to write love letters (in English) to friends and people they love and they refused to do that - at the beginning- because "that's for stupid people.... nobody loves ..love does not exist, teacher.." and I was like " seriously?" and they replied " Teacher, you're too naive.. we're not... teacher, wake up .. this is a horrible world " and I said "The world is not terrible, WE are terrible because we let bad things to penetrate our souls..."
So, it's not only among my students but people in general, couples don't see each other but Whatsapp, Facebook and Twitter are more important, internet is more important... but.. real life... having physical contact , having some coffee together or a delicious meal is just in the past.... WHAT'S GOING ON?
