Fasting for Peace – Day Forty

By Kevin Guardado, Sophomore

I felt really hungry and I couldn’t concentrate on what I was doing so I played games to take my mind off of it. The best part of my whole day was that I drank lots of refreshing water.

“I pledge to be mindful of my relationships and my actions both on and off campus.” I realized all my mistakes that I committed in school when I wasn’t in B.A.M, so I started to fix those mistakes by staying away from all my bad friends and being around my good friends. I demonstrated good actions by being mindful of my mistakes and fixing them to represent what a good  B.A.M member I am.

I got some pledges done but not all. I did not invite anyone to my fast but I did tell my mother that I was on a fast so she could remember I wasn’t going to eat until Saturday at 1:00 p.m.

Fasting was a pretty interesting experience. I felt more tired than usual. Consequently, I wasn’t in the best of moods at all times. You’re not really aware of being hungry after a while, but sometimes I would find myself planning what I was going to eat later (I do this a lot because if I don’t know what I’m going to eat I basically can keep eating forever), and then I would remember that I couldn’t and would feel silly.

I think it did good for my patience and also made me really appreciate how tasty water is! People were pretty nice about it in general. Nobody fasted with me, but I did get some people to be interested in potentially doing it in the future. I got a few people who were thinking about doing it and I basically told them it was pretty alright and encouraged them to try it.
