Compromising my Principles
The other day (well actually over a month ago - whoops!) when I picked them up from dancing, the girlies told me they were going to be dancing in a display in the local park with their class mates. In two weeks time.
The following week when I collected them, I popped in to find out the details for the Saturday morning. A former pupil of the Academy had come to ask if they'd be willing to perform in aid of ...
Wait for it ...
The International Day of Life - or the anti abortionists. Well, as I've always been a pro-choice sort of girl, I was somewhat shocked. I was really not happy with them showing support for something that went against my principles, but the performance was to be held the following day, and I didn't want to let the girls down either. So the show went on.
I wish I'd known about this at the very start of the negociations, or even a few days before. I should have had my own one woman protest with a t-shirt advocating the right to choose.
So many years fighting the right to emancipation for women destroyed.
