Recently, my children and I made an agreement that they would occasionally blog for me. A week ago, Xavier wrote me a blog post, and I told him I couldn't post it. It is a very confrontational piece, and that isn't what this blog is all about. When he originally suggested blogging for me, he was talking about discussing things he loves like planets, Doctor Who, etc.
Today, I realized that the post is written in Xavier's voice, and his voice is important. It is important to recognize his searching, and the fact that he is at a place in his life where he is confrontational. I want him to find his voice, and right now, it is confrontational. And if he needs to be confrontational to satisfy the needs of his soul, confrontational is what we'll get. Great things can come from confrontation. So, here is his unfiltered blog post, edited only for punctuation and spelling on his request. All emphasis is his.
