Through the course of life, one tends to occasionally dabble into bad decision making. While a remedy is often procured, some people will wallow in the product of bad decisions in a manner which handicaps them, paralyzing them from freeing themselves from a systematic self-destruction.
“All 10 state officers get in a circle to pray before every general session and Vespers,” Texas FFA State Officer Jeremiah Miller said.
As portrayed in the Texas FFA 82nd annual Vespers program, a young man succumbs to the vices of immorality and delves into a cycle of destructive decisions. During this psychosis, the young man breaks away from the relationships with his family and friends. His predicament climaxes as his brother is drawn into the fray.
“I felt persuaded to review possible consequences,” Garret Hendrix Princeton FFA said.
In order to overcome his conundrum, he reestablishes his relationships with his family and friends. A defined message in this performance is a person’s ability to overcome temptations and the strength that can be found in wholesome relationships. While some relationships will tear one down, others are made to build one up. Like the young man in the Vespers program, anyone can turn his or her life around with the help of others and the strength that comes from within his or herself. Everyone’s life has road bumps, but it is up to the will of the person, and the strength and bonds in the relationships we develop, which allows life to be positive.
“I think I never really realized, until I had to serve as a state officer, that everyone’s life is a masterpiece.” Miller said.
