One hot summer afternoon in Iraq I was walking with my best friend from the neighbourhood; we were both in our early teens. He told me that he wants to be a doctor. I thought it was kind of an unrealistic goal since he wasn’t a straight A student so I asked him why he wanted to be a doctor. He told me that his dad was motivating him to finish school and to do his best. I knew my friend’s dad worked long hours, from early morning until afternoon, as construction worker then worked as a taxi driver until late evening or night. Then he continued telling me that when his dad was a teenager his grandparents never told his dad to finish school so his dad doesn’t want the same thing to happen to him. I remember making a mental note to the like, “You have to change; you can’t make your loved ones go through the same thing you went through.” The theme of this writing is ‘maturity’, so I will give you a bit of background about myself so you understand why I struggled with being mature. Both my dad’s and mom’s families have common traits: they are extremely passive and unmotivated; they have no dreams and pursue no meaningful goals; they don’t live up to the expectations of their roles as men, providers, protectors, husbands and fathers; they have low self-image and self-esteem; their thinking goes along the line, “My dad didn’t leave anything for me, why should I leave anything for my children?” So naturally I got their genes, and I too had those traits but few things happened in my life that changed me, and that’s what I am going to talk about here. The biggest two things happened to me were: one, I was never close to my family (I was never close to my uncles, cousins, and I don’t have older brothers) and I hadn’t seen my dad for the majority of my life so they had no big influence on me; two, because I had no men I considered heroes as a teenager I looked to the Bible for my heroes such as Joseph, David, Daniel, Job, Paul and of course our Lord Jesus Christ. Then in 2000 (I think) after being in Canada for a year I was watching TV and this older man who was well dressed and spoken and preaching God’s Word in a practical manner like no one else so he got my attention. Next week I found out his name is Dr. Charles Stanley and one of my uncle’s was visiting while I was listening to Dr. Stanley. My uncle asked me sarcastically, “You listen to those guys?” Meaning, it is stupid to listen to Christians. I looked at my uncle, who had been in Canada for decades and had done nothing of value with his life, then I looked back at Dr. Charles Stanley and I thought to myself, “You better keep watching this man if you don’t want to end up like your uncle!” In 2003 I went to work in a warehouse full time and one of my best co-workers was a Canadian man in his 50s who wasn’t spiritually wise by any means: spend all his money and time on beer and cigarettes. But he had different kind of wisdom and maturity: he knew when to speak and when not, when to get involved in a matter and when not, when to offer advice and when not, when to focus on his work and when to help others. I worked with him 4 years and I learned a lot from him because I hadn’t observed that type of maturity in any member of my family. Then in 2007 I started university and man was it a different atmosphere! While I was surrounded by losers all my life suddenly I was surrounded by intellectuals who were actually quite humble! It is funny how losers quite often feel the need to justify their messed up lives with unjustified prideful claims; while intellectuals have no such need. So I changed: I started to dream and dream big! I started making personal plans and meeting deadlines I had set for myself. The fear of dreaming, planning and having a purpose slowly faded away. All my life I was scared if I dreamt that I was disobeying God. If I had a purpose I was defying God’s purpose. If I planned God would destroy my plans. Then I learned how to dream, have a purpose and plans while still recognizing that God is in control and His purpose and plans come first. Actually, it takes more obedience to plan and surrender your plan to God than not have any plan. But the biggest blow to the old passive Fadi came in 2008 when my dad came to Canada. I was shocked by how passive, unmotivated and reliant on others he is. He has no worthy to mention dreams and worked toward no goals. He is not living but simply existing—I think his only goal in life is not to die physically. (Don’t get me wrong, he is not a bad person.) As I got to observe my dad I started to understand what my mom meant all those years by telling me in frustration, “You are so much like your dad!” What really motivated me to further change is seeing how unhappy my mom is with him. I didn’t want my future wife to feel the same way. Because I never knew him I started asking her about him and I found out that he has been like this ever since they got married—he simply didn’t have big dreams or goals and never im

I am not religious, although I was raised Episcopalian. That is a religion that is basically Catholic but doesn’t have affiliations with the Pope. But let me tell you a little something about Jesus Christ. First of all, what an interesting character in the history of the human race. I fully believe that we are still in the very very very beginning stages of our existence. I believe we will be around for millions or billions of years (humans) and science tells us we have only been using tools with very basic social development for about 10,000 years, dating back to the Mesolithic age. If you put the number 10,000 on a scale with 1,000,000,000 (1 billion), then we are in the WEE beginning stages of human existence and technology and everything else. Well – during this 10,000 or so years, the most interesting, revered, mocked, mysterious, and crazy character has been Jesus Christ. First of all here is a guy that we base our entire DATE on. When you write 12/23/2008 (today), that technically is based on this guy’s birthday. We base our entire calendar not on the revolutions around the sun or the stars or some kind of drastic event like an ice age or something. No – we base it on this dudes birthday. Wow. Not only that, he is the most popular person in the history of this planet bar none. No one beats him. He is an instrumental person in all the major religions. You can say his name to anyone that I know, poor or rich, dumb or smart, dirty or clean, Mexican, Indian, Black, White, woman or man – and they will know who he is. That is amazing. I bet I can go to any country and just say the word “Jesus Christ” and they will have heard of him. I’m betting my left leg that I could go into a weird tribal village in Africa and mention Jesus Christ in their native language and they would have heard of him. I’ll bet you. So that alone tells me this guy did something pretty damn significant. He died about 2000 years ago around the age of 30. He had a few followers. The Roman government killed him. His followers and their suceeding followers wrote about him for years and years. The Romans actually eventually took his Christian religion as their own. Funny how that worked. He is the main subject in the most popular book ever written; The Holy Bible. You can find this book anywhere on this planet including motels, department stores, and every book store around (although he didn’t write a word of it). You can find him on thousands of bumper stickers, car air fresheners, on the back of a cup you buy at Wal-Mart, on stickers, mowed on the side of the highway “Jesus Saves”, on car license plates “Jesus4”, EVERYWHERE!! It’s almost a fucking joke. It IS a joke. Somehow, I don’t think the guy who existed 2000 years ago wanted his mangled picture on some hippies t-shirt with a hand glider saying “What Would Jesus Do”. He would be ashamed and embarrassed of such ridiculousness. All this guy preached was love. I think the people that act like they follow him or revere him have gotten so past the original teachings of this obviously fantastic man. Most of them make me sick with their stupid flashy graphics and advertisements. Jesus is rolling in his grave, believe me. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that millions of people consider him THE SON OF GOD. Ha, wow. December 23rd, 2008
