I’m always curious about people’s religious background, how it’s formed them and the decisions they’ve made – whether or not they’ve decided to continue practicing later in life. Oddly enough, most of the people I spoke to were brought up Catholic and they had a lot to say about how it’s made them who they are.
Antony says he could have gone to the prestigious Stuyvesant High School in New York City but in the end he chose to stick with the Catholic school he grew up in because, oddly enough, of its diversity. Antony is a recognized civic leader in Beacon who is currently running for the Beacon School Board. #leadership
Elijah is a pretty amazing kid. He can quote from Greek mythology and we even discussed some theological difference between Christianity and Judaism. But by far what impressed me the most was his description of the religion he and his father invented: “Humbology”. This kid’s got his religion on.
