The Potential in Every Child

My good friend Rob shared this photo on facebook today:

That’s powerful.  We need to accept that the collective knowledge of humanity will always be limited by the extent to which we turn a blind eye to poverty.

Maya Angelou said:

“My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy.  That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors.”

That is why the hard work of teachers and college tutors in the poor parts of our towns and cities is so vital.  If you are a fantastic teacher than please think about working, or staying, in the school where you can influence children and young people who others might not give a chance to.  Your care and effort could literally change the world.

And the same goes for health workers, social workers, youth workers, the police etc. etc.   Anything you can do to pave the way for a young person to get stuck into their education is making society a better place.

Do you know any kids you can invest some time and love into?  Take a chance and go for it and you might end up changing their lives and yours.

  1. Interesting!

    I’ve seen several simple cures, promoted as cancer curing, already discovered.

    The “Cancer cure” industry is huge. Millions are made each year. If a cure is found and it is relatively inexpensive. A lot of people are going to be out of a very lucrative job.

    Education is important for our world. Cancer cure notwithstanding. It is within the interest of the oligarchs, that education is limited to their class.

    Nicholas Tesla made many discoveries in his lifetime and they were usurped and hidden in favour of people, bankers, like JP Morgan and his cronies. It’s why our rivers are dammed and power lines draped across the landscape. When instead we might of had Tesla towers that transmitted the power freely, for the benefit of mankind. Instead society is made indebted, with mega-projects drowning good arable land for backed up lakes. But the criminal bankers continue with their crimes.

  2. With my wife coming from the Balkans I am well aware of how suppressed the innovations of Tesla are! It really is a crime how money and power always seem to win out. But I believe there is always hope…
