that's real...

and the point about culture is important too. If I had a nickel for every person who told me their parent said this: "as long as I don't get a call from the principal & you don't have to repeat a grade, I don't care what you do," I'd be rich.

With that thinking, the value of an education--be it personal or simply the opportunity to better the quality of life--can fall by the wayside.

"The entire world is being driven insane by this single phrase: "My religion alone is true." ...Who can make a system from Divine Mystery? But if any sincere practitioner, within whatever culture or religion, prays and meditates with great devotion & committment to Truth alone, Your Grace will flood his mind and heart..." ~~Ramakrishna
