First things first, if I got any of the facts wrong, im sorry. I donít mean to offend anyone. I did do a bit of research for this but if there are any mistakes or anything you donít agree with do let me know.
Ok there are probably a million different reasons why I wrote this but Iíll only explain a few of them least you fall asleep on me. Also I realise my writing isnít the best Ė I would rather you focus on the moral or the message of the story instead.
To begin with, itís summer here, and while Litha isnít something I celebrate I do like the idea of it. For those who donít know, Litha is celebrated on the day of the summer solstice.
Also I used the term ďwitchĒ because itís a word that everyone knows in a real life sense as well as fantasy. Iím aware that there are other terms but this related better to the story.
This story was made to emphasize a lot of the things that have come to my attention regarding prejudice. I want to point out that people CAN get along despite their religion, their race, their gender, their sexuality, their culture and whatever else people want to use as an excuse to hurt people.
Also I say sexuality because while Robinís culture has nothing against different sexualities I have found that quite a few Christians do. I considered making both of the children the same gender but I thought that that might become the main focus and take away the attention from the other things that I wanted to bring attention to.
Children are the hope of the future, if it isnít obvious we need to look after children and ensure that they are brought up in a respectful manner and know to trust, love and hope. Children should not be forced to continue the prejudices and disrespects that we do because society is forever changing, and they need to understand that. Both of these children were part of a loving, caring family that only wished the best for them. Thatís how it should be, because of their upbringing they were able to see past societies disrespectful beliefs and decide for themselves what they thought and believed in.
