And I feel it is no longer a kindness for people like me to try to do the best we can for kids like yours and the future, but a duty and responsibility.petemasterpete wrote:
I am honestly embarrassed and afraid of the world my children are inheriting.
It always kind of was, if I'm honest - but shit was (for the most part) pretty OK.
I'm still in the arena of a pregnancy scare at the moment, so I'm starting to think long, cold and hard about these kinds of things. Given the choice, I'd fucking abort, cut my gene-line off, and leave the world to its own devices when I die.
And because of such a selfish inclination, I'm starting to think pursuing teaching seriously is my best chance of trying to give the next generation a slight advantage over the huge challenges they're going to face. Again, a selfish idea, but I don't completely suck, and I'm good at teaching.
Just not huge about doing it in Australia.
