Easy as Kindergarten

August 28, 2009
By Anonymous

In kindergarten, we all learn the same lessons. Share your toys, play fair, put things back where you found them. Be kind to everybody and say please and thank you.

All throughout our childhood, these lessons are pounded into our heads every second. As a result of this, you'd think it'd be easy to remember, right?

Wrong. Look at where we are now: right in the middle of a war. Because, for some reason, nobody in the world can think back far enough to remember those few and simple lessons we learned in kindergarten and use them to solve our problems. Can you imagine what the world would be like if we could all just play fair and put things back where we found them? How many lives and minds would be spared if we could just think like kindergarteners again?

I agree with @Miyo but also this applies to daily life
if you take all of those Kindergarten rules, and apply them to life,
Life would be easy
but it's not. Life is not easy, and it never will be, because that's how we grow and learn from our mistakes and victories. If we break the rules, we can find out why they were placed there, and if they are needed or not. Kinsergarten taught us a lot of things, but the most important thing, was how to grow and learn.

ok i love the title, but i don't see how that really matters. i mean it does not even follow the topic of why mit matters and this has nothing to do with that.
