We have too many fears today, creating fears for our children, and have built walls and chain link fences to protect them, leaving their imaginations to be created by electronics… and then ask ourselves, why are our children killing each other… while we work desperately to give them a materialistic world we did not have… maybe we have taken away something very valuable, their ability to use their own imagination to determine right from wrong.
A thought comes to mind…something as simple as a baby’s first toys…
I remember my doll, she did not really talk, except through my imagination… today, even a small baby’s toys must have some form of electronic movement to stimulate the child’s interest.
I read an article where college professors have found students incapable of completing assignments that require a student’s imagination; therefore, they only use structured assignments to teach students.
We need more than organization to build the future!
College or higher education today is about building a good income, as the old saying that came to light in the 20th Century…”Keep up with the Joneses!”
Are we deleting the use of a very important part of the brain (and heart) of young people today, that is also deleting values that are a part of it… will it eventually include our belief in a higher power… God…?
“Imagination reveals what the world could be”.
