Breanne is a true Fighter! She heard we were headed to Louisiana and hopped on a 12 hour bus ride to meet us. We asked her to write about her experience...
"I showed up on Monday and walked into the school gym. The assembly had just ended, the gym was empty except for Clay and Cam who were tearing down the equipment. I walked in having no idea what to say. Hi I’m Breanne. I’m from Austin and I came to help you guys in any way I can.
And so began the journey. I teamed up with the guys
embarking on the most arduous and daunting expedition. Yes, we were going to go
to public high schools to talk about pornography and bring awareness to the
harmful effects of it. Each school was different. Every audience had it’s own
personality. They were reserved or rowdy. Respectful or rebellious. Rational or
But no matter the audience, no matter the school, after each presentation we had people approach us in gratitude. The sound technician personally thanked us. We had parents, teachers and principles thank us. Students lined up and waited their turn just to say thanks. And so why is it that such a taboo topic and such a controversial message received so much appreciation? Because it rang true. You can’t deny the truth; it resonates with you.
As a fighter there are times where you wonder if you are even making a difference. You wonder if you are wasting your time. You wonder if people even care. But as a fighter you have to remind yourself that it IS a fight. It’s not a piece of cake. It’s not a walk in the park. It’s not a Sunday afternoon picnic. It is a fight. A battle against a society that promotes pornography and an audience that would rather not talk about it.
On a lighter note, the boys got to experience Louisiana first hand. First, they had to learn how to pronounce the name of the city Lafayette. (Laff-EE-et) They ate gumbo and po boys. They said “y’all” and “sha baby”. They enjoyed the green scenery and the sunshine. The humidity, not so much.
Consider what you can do. What is your part? Maybe it’s getting on a 12 hour bus ride, driving through severe storms, and showing up Monday morning having absolutely no idea of what you’re getting yourself into?"
Put up your fists, and FIGHT.
