Favorite Quote:
You\\\'re alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.
-Barbara Hall, A Summons to New Orleans, 2


Today
It happens
Education is found important
But later on in life
Scientists may find a new technology to learn faster
And
Without effort we learn
I don't believe that
We should try hard to learn
And
We should do our best
We shouldn’t try hard and education will not matter
In a few years we won't ever even be able to think that
We can change our attitudes
I’m not sorry because it doesn't work that way
As technology advances education becomes irrelevant
Technology matters and education does not

Unless, together we choose to reverse it

Things are changing at such a rapid pace in our society. Priorities are getting completely out of order and I hope that when people read this piece they think about if their priorities should change. Please read this phrase by phrase upward aswell as the usual downward reading.
