The level of teenage pregnancies make you wonders if these teenagers have never heard of platonic relationships. Teenage years should be about fun, enjoying moments you can never relive. It is a time to focus on pursuing a career and staying on track to secure a bright future. It is not a time to take on the job of being responsible for another life.

On the bus on my way to work I couldn’t help noticing a girl. She is probably fourteen but no older than fifteen. The first time I noticed her was when she came on the bus one morning with a guy. He took the only available seat while she stood the entire ride to school, he didn’t even offer to hold her bag and I thought look at that.

I kept noticing them after that. She was always smiling and up under his arm. I could see she was smitten with him and I remember thinking I only hope she is taking her education serious and don’t make a fool of herself over this guy. This morning she came on the bus alone not looking so happy and she is very much pregnant. She is apparently taking summer classes because she got off at the school.  I felt bad for her. Come September when her friends will be returning to school she will have to be preparing for a baby she is not ready for. She is still a child herself. Girls careers before babies please.
