In today’s world children are much wiser than adults. It is us adults who want to hide our heads in the sand pretending everything is fine. While doing so we think that our children must be kept away from the knowledge of the violence and injustice that is going on in our world. By doing so we think we are protecting their innocence.
In today’s world children are much wiser than adults. Children know how we adults have destroyed the world with our greed and fancy for war and weapons. They are not oblivious of it, neither should they be kept oblivious of it. Our behavior is a lesson for them. It teaches them how not to follow in our foot steps. After all, if we were to stand in all wisdom, we would have realized something that is very well put by a native American proverb.
Treat the earth well; it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
