Carnal Limits of an Honourable Man

After going through 5 strenuous days of a pre-service patriotism camp for government servants, I have to say that I am quite impressed!
I have gained a good understanding of the constitution & foundation of our country.
I hate history but I am glad that I learned a bit of it because those who do not know history are prone to letting history repeat itself.
I dont want to let bad history repeat itself...
However, I am not here to comment on the content or implementation of the camp.

I am here to comment on something I observed in a man.
I have observed a shameless display of carnal desire in one of the camp facilitators.
This caused me to look into myself & wonder...
Will I be like him in the future?

I dont know about other men but I am a man with needs...
This need surfaced during puberty & grew significantly as a developed into a man.
At this moment, I am a humble uncorrupted individual.
Therefore, I carry myself with honour & self-control.
But a few years down the road, once I have some wealth, influence & power, will I still be so honourable?
Or will I start collecting public titles of respect to mask my inner corruption?

I witnessed this facilitator who is well-decorated with titles make a mockery of them.
I witnessed someone entrusted with the responsibility of enlightening us shift our focus from patriotism to sexual tension.
I watched this married man with 2 children profess to the whole student population that he is a "lover of women".
I watched as he left the small group under his care to walk around the camp & interfere with other groups.
I saw his creepy eyes scouting for eye candy every time he walked by my group.
I watched with great anger the smirk of pleasure on his face every time he got the student population to go along with one of his many cunning dirty jokes.

He is a facilitator at a camp essential to building national unity & harmony.
He is an Ustaz & a Muslim who has completed the Hajj.
He can quote the Quran without much effort.
He maintains the image of a knowledgable & rich man.

Is someone like this supposed to:
- shamelessly use words with sexual connotations?
- ask for the phone numbers of attractive female students?
- walk around with an air of pride & aloofness?
- blatantly show off expensive possessions?

I dont think so.

If I were a woman, I wouldn't find him desirable at all...
One, he is not good looking. (Rules out a one-night-stand.)
Two, he is too full of himself. (Rules out a romantic relationship.)
Three, I cannot trust him with my heart. (Rules out marriage.)

I really do hope the pressure & difficulty in life does not push me to become a sleazy old man.
This sleazy facilitator gave me the shock of my life.
I never knew such a man would exist in this world.
Now I know what not to become...
Now I know which path not to take lest I end up like him.

There is only one such facilitator in the whole team.
I have met most of the other facilitators & they all seem to be normal law-abiding citizens doing their part for their beloved country.
And one of them had a personality so awesome it's exemplary.

I will choose to walk on a path similar to theirs, if not better...
I will not let a few bad apples cloud my judgement.
The camp was great & the lessons planned out for us were great too.
And from this post, you can see that the horny facilitator taught me a lesson that is even greater.
