Children, our future

I came across this quote this morning.
"What can educators do to foster real intelligence?  ...We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine Earth would teach us:  silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation, and wildness."  David W. Orr

This is a beautiful concept.  Not altogether different from what Christ was teaching.  I don't expect a consciousness awakening that has everyone thinking this way but those of us who are trying need to do the best with the understanding we have.
