We’ve all heard it said that our enemies won’t need to attack us because we aren’t staying strong from within. No shot need be fired. We may well be attacking ourselves from within with our own apathy, ignorance, and self-indulgence. Think about it. Often.
(To the tune of I Write the Songs sung by Barry Manilow):
Let’s write some plans that make the children try.
Say, why must school hurt? Oh, yes, please why?
Is there a chance that we could stop the sigh?
Let’s create and feed a learning high!
