A cause worth fighting for?

August 25, 2008

No cause is lost if there is but one fool who will fight for it. These are strong words which have sadly fallen on deaf ears.

Two years ago, be began the fundraising committee. It was my group and sophies group with a few others including the almighty Istabraq. It was a different time, where the committee was fun, productive and people cared about the cause! Last year things began to change for the worse, but in the end we got the job done. This year, the committee is an absolute joke.

We elected Istabraq as our leader as she knows how to get the job done. There is one minor detail we were ingnorant of in making our decision, she has a heart. She cares about people and is always friendly, but this attitude is the beginning of the transformation from human to doormat. It is these caring, considerate people that are often taken advantage of, and this is what’s happenning here.

Each meeting takes up the entire lunch, and not every topic gets covered. This is due to two main parts: People who won’t shut up, and Istabraqs inability to use power over others due to consideration and a kind heart. The meetings are stopped after every second sentence she says, literally, as there are too many people who just don’t give a damn about anything but thenselves. As for the people who didn’t bother attending the meeting, they caused more productivity than half the room, which is a sad truth in and of itself. The behaviour of some members is nothing short of deplorable.

This organisation is lit on fire and until someone grabs a bucket of water, we will slowly burn until there’s nothing left. How can there be a cause worth fighting for when the only soldiers are mindless teenage drones.

    Yeah, we should kick out those who wouldnt shut up, or Istabraq should at least point them out. If she cant do it someone else should. We need to show them that we dont tolerate talking anymore.

    Hey wait a sec, why am I known as part of SOPHIE’S GROUP? Can’t it be THERESA’S GROUP? Sheesh. Anyways, in Year 7, the fundraising committee consisted of only Sophie and I 😉 It was so damn productive that Ms Lim decided to cancel it altogether, and decided to start at the end of Year 8.

    It’s not my fault I haven’t attended the meetings. For some reason I feel sick on mondays. It’s a curse =P
