New Beginnings in how we THINK, especially about school

Setting sun -- just before the Green Flash

Good Morning, God, and thanks again and again for this world we live in. Thank you for opportunities to listen — to ourselves, our family, our friends, AND maybe even someday to those we consider enemies — or at least WRONG.  New Beginnings, GOD!  We need New Beginnings.

The first time I went out in an outrigger canoe I said WHY ARE WE TRYING TO KEEP KIDS IN SCHOOL DURING THE DAY — WHEN THEY COULD BE OUT HERE!

Then I read in Three Cups of Tea how children in the mountains of Badakhshan were sitting on the frozen ground practicing their lessons in the dirt.  They WANTED to learn.

So here, God, is a PLEA for a New Beginning in how we think about and present to children / people the whole idea of EDUCATION.

We ALL need HELP, here.  PLEASE!  And help ME this morning as I listen . . .   THANKS!

Story teller,

Posted in being a beginner, education, systematic rebuilding required
