It’s important for the future of our nation and the world that we educate our young in a neutral way so that as they mature they can become wise, capable and honest voters; and, in the process, elect leaders with those essential qualities. Values are so necessary in the cultivation of the mind, body and “little piece of God” of our young people. It’s not just a matter of “getting an education.” It is crucial to learn and apply the wisdom-associated values: empathy, truth, honesty, justice, cooperation, peace, compassion, universal well-being, creativity and general knowledge. This must be accompanied by the quest to rid ourselves and our youth, of selfishness, hate, revenge, envy, and greed. Wisdom can be taught and our spiritual leaders are all-important in this crucial task – globally. Kindness begets kindness – human to human, universally.
