I was reading the guest commentary of Don Kennedy (Aug. 30) in the Ahwatukee Foothills News and decided reply. In Don’s world it looks like there are only two choices, the socialist or the patriot. Given our two party system, yes there are two choices or really are there? Is Don implying that the Democrats are socialist and Republicans are patriots? But let me not get ahead of myself.

Preparing teens for adulthood includes helping them navigate the ins and outs of social media. Sometimes teens don’t think before they act. But, this makes sense because the prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until the mid-20s. This part of the brain is responsible for “executive functions;” which includes the ability to organize thoughts, solve problems, foresee possible consequences and delay gratification. That’s why many times adolescents do things that simply don’t make sense to us. So, when it comes to social media they need to be educated.

Two old friends paid me a visit last week. The first slipped in without a word, freezing my mind for an instant, like the shock of ice cream gulped down too eagerly on a hot day. As we visited for a while, I noticed the familiar voice is edged with a steely insistence, somehow sharpened rather than blunted by a hunger for news of trouble, and the scent of brewing chaos. By God’s grace and through His perfect timing, there, just in nick of time, was another beloved friend knocking on the door of my heart, gently enfolding me in loving arms. This beloved voice speaks quietly, yet perfectly clearly, sharing a different story, at once both old and fresh. The voice carries words brimming with abundant life, like a lush oasis in an otherwise barren and hostile desert. Such is the power of moments of fear to paralyze our senses, and to leave us feeling isolated and lost. Such is the power of the unparalleled peace found through our faith in Christ Jesus, our Lord, in the comforting words of Scripture.
