I heard a story once of a man who announced the completion of a new educational facility by making the statement that the multi-million-dollar building would be all worth it if it “saved one child.” A man from the audience approached him concluding the announcement and asked if he hadn’t overstated the worth of the building. The man responded with, “Not if that child was mine.”
Together, my wife and I have eight children all of whom are now living lives of their own in productive ways across the nation. Our twenty-one grandchildren (ages 0-20) who remind us every day how important the basic principles that determine our tranquil societal evolution are of paramount significance now, more than ever before in our civilizations’ history.
I achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Organizational Administration. I had the privilege to be a teacher in a private education setting for 32 years, which over a third of those years were spent in an administrative role. While enjoying life in multiple recreational activities, community and family events, and exploring our worlds natural beauties, my educational passion is witnessing children engage in, and be lifted by, their individual and collective enlightenment experiences. There are few experiences in my life that exceed the joy of experiencing when a child’s “light goes on” in the accumulation of information coming to the culmination of recognizing basic principles of truth to live their life by.
