I got blank, completely blank, looks. They just did not regiser what i was saying. In some cases there are specious arguments abount how greater wrongs are going on - cars, ozone layer, global warming ... As if two wrongs ever made a right. I do not even get the drift of many 'discussions (for the sake of discussions !)'.
But to equip our children, all children, to think with their mind, heart and soul in tandem ... without that we would have failed them. And the earth.
(A year later 2014 ...)
I grieve that we have failed so completely to give the next generation a sense of empathy. It is a systemic failure - which our generation needs to own up.
