For years now I've thought about talking to teens about this huge issue and starting to realize that I may just be getting somewhere with it. I know I may not be the prime candidate considering I waited to have children in marriage. But I have my fair share of friends who didn't wait. Seeing the impact a 27 year old can have on a 17 year old in the last few years has been eye-opening.
So today, just one small step. A blog post to open your eyes. If your a teen, live your life to the fullest before living your life for your child. You have your whole life to raise children, live this time for yourself. If your a parent, do what you can now, to prevent your children for becoming a statistic. May it be small or big considering your circumstances, there is no time to wait. If your an adult, just the smallest act can be a huge difference. Write a blog post, have a nice talk with your teenage neighbor, call an old friend who may need help talking to a teen, or volunteer at a local organization promoting prevention of teen pregnancy. One small step will change someone's life for the better.
