من ذكريات الصحوة: في المدرسة

بالعربي:

لم تكن المدرسة مكان تعلم.. كانت مكان للتجمع يومياً والتباحث فيمن سيذهب ومن لن يذهب الى جهنم.. كانت كل المدرسة تعرف ان حوّاء امها لا تغطي وجهها وتعرف تتكلم انجليزي.. سخر بعض الاشخاص جهودهم على مر العام لهدايتي الى الإسلام..
الاجانب احياناً يسمون الثمانينات بالحقبة التي نساها الستايل..
في السعودية, كانت الحقبة التي نساها المنطق.



In English:

Schools were not a place to learn.. they were a place for daily gathering to discuss who is and is not going to hell.. the whole school knew that Eve's mother doesn't cover her face and knows how to speak English.. some made it their year long mission to convert me to Islam..
Westerners sometimes call the eighties the decade that fashion forgot
In Saudi, it was the decade that reason forgot.

    I've missed you, but I can't read arabic. I hope you've been well and happy and that's why you haven't written.

    Eve, your blogs seem very realistic and provide a valuable insight to the ways in Saudi. You described school as somewhat brainwashing and putting people down. I really loved reading your last sentence because it puts a lot emphasis on the situation.
