Standing for Something: One woman’s experience taking a stand against pornography

I am not the type of person that will speak my mind. In fact, I think I am rather fearful and shy when it comes to sharing my thoughts and opinions on important social issues. I usually have a lot to say, but don’t always have the courage to say it, until after an issue is long gone. Well, something happened to me a few weeks ago that changed things, and I decided to trust in the Lord, to not be afraid, and muster up the courage and stand for something!

On July 2nd, I was a witness to an incident of indecency at my local library. A man looking at Pornography and acting inappropriate while doing so. I had 3 of my children looking for books in the library at that time, and luckily they didn’t see anything, but the fact remains that they easily could’ve. I notified a librarian and all she could say was, “it’s not illegal to look at pornography.” I said, “I know, but my children are here.” All she did was pass the man a note telling him to use better judgment and of course he didn’t care.

I decided I wasn’t going to stay quiet about it, so I took action and reported my story to the news to warn parents that the library is not a safe place and for the library to know that I wasn’t going to bring my children there until they changed their Internet Use Policy.
