I am not going to debrief this story because I am trying to make my posts shorter! ;) If you search "Carrie Prejean" on CNN.com, you may catch up with the story before or after reading this post. This is a hard hot topic to post on simply because there is so much "he said, she said" going on back and forth between Carrie herself and the press. What I like to do with cases like this is WIPE AWAY ALL THE B.S.!!!!!!! If you'd like to talk about all the 'he said, she said', fine....... but I actually am not posting about this to comment on....her comment on gay marriage, her reactions to the press attacking her, the reason behind why I feel she got fired, whether I 'agree' with her book, her religious beliefs, yada yada.
I am writing about this story because I just can't help identifying with her story! A young woman, trying to find her place in the world, realizing she has a 'gift' of a nice body and face....struggling every day just trying to live as a 'Christian' in a hateful world, knowing that she, herself, isn't perfect in her 'walk'.......for whatever reason decides to pose for some nude photos......for whatever reason sends a guy a graphic sexual video. If I didn't know any more of this story, I'd say so far she's making decisions like many, many, many, MANY, MANY, MANY teen/young women out there right now!! Except for the fact that her path lead her to become Miss California USA. All of the sudden she's in spot lights and an idol for little girls. All of the sudden she probably realized she shouldn't have made some former decisions....but now she's in too deep........
All I really have to say on the issue is Carrie Prejean is dealing with her persecutors to the best of her ability. Both of us being 22...........I just couldn't imagine the level of persecution she goes through so far above my own. I may agree or disagree with how she's dealing with the criticism or what she's saying.......but I will say that there's a piece of my heart that feels for her. Involuntarily, I know exactly where she's coming from and know exactly why other people don't.
If she is lying - she shouldn't. If she is still hiding things - it'll get found out. If she hasn't fully accepted the responsibility of her actions - Well.......she'll learn.
We ALL have to go through different processes in order to fully learn the lessons of life. She's going through one in National News, on National Television.
I'll definitely pray for her...............you should, too.
