TITLE: NO PURPLE!

When I was in middle school, I went to this camp. It was a TON of fun. We played games, swam, and had devotionals twice a day for a week. I learned a lot and got to have fun with my friends at the same time.

When we were going over the rules at the beginning of the week, there was the traditional no swimming without a lifeguard, no staying out after dark, etc. But one rule that we found funny at the time, was a No Purple rule. The leadersí explanation was, boys are blue, girls are red, we donít want purple. They didnít want boys in girlís cabins and vise versa.

There was this girl in my cabin who liked this guy. He was attractive, Iíll admit. She found this rule a difficult one. But, at the end of the week, there was this lesson on sexual immorality. It discussed leaving your body for your spouse. This girl, she realized that having sex was not good to have at a young age, thankfully.

Even today, we laugh and joke about No Purple. Even mentioning the color purple triggers giggles from us. But, despite all the laughter and silliness, we understood the lesson behind No Purple. We know not to have a sexual relationship until we are married. It was a lesson, with a ton of laughter and joking thrown in. Purple, though it sounds great through the media and images, is something to wait on.

We never had that rule when we were young...I think it's great! Right on with the topic too!

Your story has a nice flow to it. You told it well and it will be easy to remember.

What an awesome way for that camp to help control raging hormones! Great story.

What a great idea, and how to use it! It just goes to show that a brief write,like this, if done with colored flavor, can connect with the reader.

Keep writing!
