"Think about the number 35,000," began Mrs. Alice Drew, Boston Trinity's art teacher, when she spoke to students on Wednesday morning. Outside of the classroom Mrs. Drew is a studio potter with a ceramics studio in Lynn.
Since numbers are relative, the number 35,000 can be a great number or perhaps an insignificant number, Mrs. Drew said. But in this case it represents the number of decisions we make every day – 35,000 choices. She reminded students that we live in a culture where right and wrong are relative. "There is a difference between your conscience and the Holy Spirit," she said. "Who helps you make your decisions?"
