Teach the Children. Take them by the hand and lead them.
We all love our children.
We want them to be happy and care free.
We want them to be healthy and well fed.
We want to see them adequately housed.
We want them to live in a peaceful and prosperous world.
We want them to grow-up strong and independent.
We want them to be able to defend themselves whenever necessary.
We want them to be able and willing to defend the helpless.
We want them to be good and to be responsible.
We want them to be flexible and not fragile.
These wishes for our children will not happen if we do not live up to these principles.
We need to work for a better tomorrow Today.
We need to fight greed and corruption in all it’s forms.
We need to demand, support and implement Green Technology.
We need to teach our children how to defend themselves and why they need to know how. There are plenty of monsters in the world. Sheltering them from this awareness does not help them to be safe and happy. Teach them what bullies are and why they need to stand up to them. Teach them to have confidence in themselves and in their abilities. Teach them the Golden Rule and help them to understand it. We don’t need to confirm or deny God because of the separation of church and state. But we do need to teach them good morals and good fellowship.
All this and more we need to do. We need to promote and support in our communities, in our World.
