As Carrie Prejean continues to suffer, "grow up", fall and stand back up in front of the entire world, parents should discuss with our own children the many truths that Carrie's drama reveals. Among them: 1) If you dare to challenge what is "politically correct", you will become a target. 2) In today's high-tech world, "Be sure, your sins will find you out." 3) If your life is marked by modesty, honesty, and decency, your enemies' attacks will be far less effective.
Carrie Prejean is still young enough to recover from her deep wounds - both the self-inflicted ones and those caused by her hateful enemies. My prayer is that she will remain courageous, and will be humble and wise enough to use her mistakes to help awaken her generation to the pernicious lies of the pop culture. I also pray that God will send Carrie a mentor who truly cares for her and can help her grow into the mighty woman she has proved many times over that she is capable of becoming.
We must do everything in our power to build our own daughters into women of inner strength, virtue, beauty and modesty so that they too can stand up for what is right; and so that when they do, they will be fully equipped to win.
