What's Your Priority?

"The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all:  it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality."
~ H. Mencken

Because this is how I feel today.
Because I never want to allow my standards to fall.
Because I can't say "no".
Because I believe in hard work and sacrifice.
Because thinking takes time and is supposed to be difficult.
Because the learning is in the struggle.
Because through our trials we grow.
Because actions speak louder than words.
Because I have a standard and a priority.

I wonder what would happen if I "was too busy?"

Knowing why you posted it new meaning...makes me a little angry and a little sad. Why must people lie for their children? Wish they would grow up, already.
