November 6, 2010 (Pen Men At Work): Oregon celebrated Halloween with a difference this Sunday. A couple in Oregon took the Halloween celebrations to a different level this year when they decided to educate young teenagers on this special day. Well, Daniel and Kathleen Harris of the Silverton region in Oregon distributed condoms among the teenagers living in and around their neighborhood, in an attempt to educate the young boys and girls on sex. Considering that the subject is a very delicate issue with teenagers especially in the western world, this attempt on the part of the Harris couple is indeed praiseworthy.

However the goodie bags which contained the condoms were not devoid of their rightful content. Accompanying the condoms inside the goodie bag were toothbrushes and candies. But their effort at sex education did not please all who were present at the Halloween bash. According to a parent of a 14 year old girl, distributing condoms to teenagers who are so tender an age may prove harmful too and may actually drive them towards committing acts which they were till today only curious about. Say Daniel Cote, the father of the 14 year old girl, distributing condoms without the prior consent of parents is also a crime.

Daniel and Kathleen Harris are apologetic about the incident because they had planned to distribute the special goodie bags only to teenagers above the age of 16. In a statement to the media, the Harris couple said that they had initially planned to enquire the ages of all present before distributing the condoms.
