None At Midlife

It's Our Responsibility To Teach Well
It's Our Responsibility To Teach Well

There is no peace without forgiveness.  No happiness without peace.

Watching the Winter Olympics this past weekend with our son (9), there was a special segment about 9/11, and the role that Gander (Canada) played in clearing American airspace.

It hit me very hard that our son had no clue what 9/11 was.

Shame on me.

Of course a mini history lesson began.  You know what his first reaction was to the loss of 3,000 innocent lives and mass destruction?

Revenge.  Typical human, emotional behavior. You and I have to exercise self-control, even in the worst of conditions.

Otherwise, there is none at midlife.
