… is it possible? Sir Ken Robinson makes very valid points…
If you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never be able to come up with anything original ~ Sir Ken Robinson
How true is that?!
In a world where insecurity is at its highest
… where fear of tomorrow runs rampant
… where the chains of yesterday keeps us captive, unknowingly
… where the need for change (not Obama-style Change) and shifting paradigms is of even greater importance than ever
because our children suffer the price of our unwillingness to do it differently.
We must be willing to do things wrong to figure out how to do what’s right.
We’ve just become complacent with what IS and continue to fight for that way of living.
The last few weeks, I’ve been thinking about the last decade:
It started off with everyone on edge, fearful, afraid – Y2K was going to bring everyone and everything, people and infrastructure to its knees.
Just as we started to put that behind us, the world did come to a halt, fell to its knees with 9/11
Pointing fingers, laying blame, going to war during a most heightened time of fear, anger, sickness and tears…
Spiraling the world into chaos, instability and extremes.
And its been stuck in that abyss ever since.
People holding onto whatever sense of security, stability and ‘truths’ imposed onto them just to get out of bed to face the day.
Hit repeat and round and round we go again, day in day out.
For real change…
And we need to start somewhere
So why not start with our children
With what and how we ‘educate’ them
From the labels we put on them to how we
stifle their growth teach them
I loved Sir Ken Robinson’s thoughts and vision…
Starting with education and the process to which we educate.
Because it really does start there, doesn’t it?
