today has been one of those days where everything has floated into the next thing. a perfect day in the most perfect sense of the word. a photo i took today of two very good friends
i remember one time when i was in wicklow, ireland, and i walked into a cul-de-sac . when i got to the end, i just stood there motionless. it was almost as though it took a while for me to realize that the road didn't go any further than it did. slightly paralyzed and confused (for some strange reason), i turned around and and walked back to the main road.
i need to realize that the road i took in life this time around, lead to nowhere as well. it was a dead end, and i need to turn around and start again. enough whispering and treading lightly. i'll stomp my ground now, and scream at the top of my lungs. it's the only way forward for me.
do not keep it all within four walls, heads bent to a desk over textbooks. let them be actively involved, from their communities to world issues. don't just take them to musuems, let them witness firsthand the fruits of empathetic, passionate people who come together for a good cause. allow them to realize their privileges, their power, and their potential. teach them the responsibility they have to themselves and their fellow human beings. after all, what good is a world of developed brains, but undeveloped hearts? what good are hands that can hold a pencil, but do not reach out to hold the hand of another, to lift the oppressed, the impoverished, the hurting?
most importantly, let a good and free education be the right of all people everywhere, regardless of age, race, gender, location, or class. do not let it be about money, corruption, control, or political purposes, but about the people, the individual beings and light of humanity.
