A Story of Mr. Montenegro

Mr. Montenegro is my current teacher in our Religion 61 class, which is all about Ethics. Just this morning, he told us a very shocking revelation that he experienced during his college life. It was an experience he will never forget.

He was an Agriculture student then, and accidentally impregnated his girlfriend who was a Muslim Senior student. They planned to abort the child because they were not ready; in addition, he might get 'killed' if the girl's parent will know that the girl is pregnant. (Oh boy...)

During the abortion, they identified that the child was a girl, and everytime Mr. Montenegro thinks about the scenario, he would cry but he don't know why (maybe because of the guilt).

Now, Mr. Montenegro is very happy with his life and his lovely wife, and his ex-girl friend is also very happy with her life and her husband who is currently an attorney. However, what is very interesting is that all their children are men...Hmmm, coincidence or karma...?

Well for me, it was definitely unethical. However, I appreciated and I idolize Mr. Montenegro for telling his story. It was definitely a bad experience, but this is what life is all about. Make mistakes, learn from it, and try not to do it again. Anyhow, I made this because I know Mr. Montenegro wants you guys to learn something in his experience, just as what he want us to learn.

This is my simple tribute for Mr. Montenegro, a person who went on with his life, learning from his experiences and spreading it to his students so that wise decisions will occur in the society.
