With no acne, no body fat, plus confidence, everyone wishes they could become them.

COMMENTARY: Girl Talk–Trust

By |2018-11-14T17:00:27+00:00November 1st, 2018|Blog, Commentary, Feature Blogger|

Walls go up and barriers surround us as we hesitate to give our trust to others. It seems simple yet obstacles hold us back from previous experiences. As new people enter our lives, our trust in them is sometimes non-existent. Over a period of time, they begin to prove that we can trust that individual entirely and without hesitation. When trust is expected in a relationship, it can change the whole dynamic for worse or for better. People’s trust evolves and becomes earned after a period of time but can be broken within an instant. As everyone goes throughout their daily lives, they trust in one way or another. Trust is an aspect that continually occurs, ranging from something microscopic to something huge. Without trust, a relationship can possibly not survive through the rough patches.

Juniors Annabelle Messer and Megan LeBlanc begin the blog series, "Girl Talk" covering issues spotlighting the triumphs and struggles from the female perspective. They begin publishing their first blog next week.  An 80-year tradition, Sadie Hawkins, continues in many high schools throughout the US and Canada. The idea first occurred as a comic strip in 1937, illustrating a women named Sadie Hawkin who got to choose whatever man she wanted to marry. The comic strip became very popular in the USA, as well as Canada. This empowered women’s rights as well as making an interesting dance idea, where girls ask guys in many high schools.

Life is a series of steps, from one responsibility to another, from one friend to another. Senior Matthew Sue says it is a series of trades and moves. In all these steps there are almost always good things and bad things. Often times with more freedom there comes more work, or as it has been said, "to whom much has been given much is expected." Often times there are steps that are bigger and more important than others and these are often the ones that define us the most.

Four years ago 13 year old Cate Vander Kooi entered the Peoples Church auditorium, hands shaking, stomach in knots.

Thirteen years ago, Juliana Lozano walked onto the Northeast Campus of Fresno Christian Elementary School with curly pigtails and an unparalleled excitement.
