Omelas

Sometimes I don't like the things that school makes me think about. For one of my English classes, I had to read "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas." Have you ever read it? Could you live with that existence? Christ died, so we could all be happy and have eternal life, but He chose. He had agency. The child in Omelas was forced against his/her will. The short story was playing with the idea from the Bible of a scapegoat. Apparently, communities would place all of their sins on the head of a goat and then they would leave the goat in the desert to die.

I got a blessing from my home teachers yesterday. It was amazing how good I have felt since then. I've felt totally at peace and comforted. I am so grateful for the Priesthood.
