Guest Speaker: Rebecca Hagelin
Last night Brookwood High School was fortunate to have Rebecca Hagelin, author of the book Home Invasion, speak to parents of the Brookwood Cluster. While the attendance at this meeting was not what was hoped for, the presentation was a whole lot more!
Rebecca discussed the invasion into our homes by the mass marketers, television, video games, bill boards along the interstate, magazines in the grocery store, and public televisions in fast food stores.
These elements have crept into our lives so slowly that we are impervious to them. However, our children are being indoctrinated with these messages hundreds of times each day - unknowingly!
Small steps and personal involvement are what is required. To eat the elephant we must take one bite at a time.
